Newly Diagnosed

 

If Parkinson’s is in your life, we can help! 

Most people newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s have lots of questions:

 - what to expect down the road with Parkinson’s

 - pros and cons of taking medications earlier, or waiting a while

 - how to minimize the impact of symptoms

-  what about complementary & alternative therapies

 - implications for ability to work or carry out other daily functions

With so much information available online these days, where does our agency fit into the picture? While the internet can provide a wealth of information, sifting through that information can consume a great deal of time. With busy lives in early stage Parkinson’s, it can be so helpful to “cut to the chase” and gain perspective quickly. In a 90-minute appointment, our knowledgeable, professional staff will reduce your stress by answering your questions, and rcommend an individual action plan to maximize your function and enhance your quality of life. We will also orient you to important local community resources enrich your support team.

Our Clients Tell Us... 

“I was reluctant to come to the agency when I was newly diagnosed, because I really didn’t want to be with older people with advanced Parkinson’s. I was so relieved to learn I could have a private consultation! The session answered so many questions, and gave me lots of useful suggestions. Being informed about Parkinson’s, and learning about all the things I can do to help myself, has been SO valuable!”

“Involvement with the agency has given me a whole new perspective in dealing with my Parkinson’s. It has really helped me change my attitude to positivity from my past state of depression.”
