Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a progressive, degenerative condition with a profound impact on those diagnosed with it and on those who care for them.  PD is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, and it is estimated that the number of persons living with PD will double by 2040. To assist community providers to better understand and respond, this presentation will provide an overview of Parkinson’s Disease by addressing:

Overview of motor and non-motor symptoms of PD and impact on daily living

Diagnosis and progression of the disease and treatments for PD management

Challenges to mental health and wellness for persons living with PD and their care providers

Resources for optimal wellbeing while living with a chronic, progressive neurological disease

 Presenting will be Anne Muskopf, MS, OTR/L, Charlotte & Richard Okonow Parkinson’s Family Support Program Director for Jewish Family & Children’s Service. Anne has over a decade of experience as a Home Health Care Clinician and is certified in LSVT-Big, an evidence-based, intensive treatment program for people with PD.
