These are unprecedented times for everyone, and people with Parkinson’s may be feeling extra uncertainty. All of us with Walker Methodist, including Havenwood communities, share a common goal when serving those with Parkinson’s: to help enhance the lives of those with Parkinson’s and their loved ones. One of the primary ways we do this is through education and empowerment.

The Parkinson’s Foundation has a great list of resources for those with Parkinson’s, their caregivers, or those who wish to support them:

  1. Virtual education programs: From wherever you are, tune into these educational programs. Hear from experts on topics like mindfulness, fitness, and more. A new program is added every weekday.
  2. Moving Day: Show your support by registering for Moving Day. Then, join the virtual walk on May 9.
  3. PD Conversations: This online support group shares questions, answers, and advice related to Parkinson’s.
  4. Aware in Care kit: If you or a loved one needs a hospital stay, the Aware in Care is a free kit to help you get the best care possible.
  5. Substantial Matters podcast: Learn about all things related to Parkinson’s from experts on this podcast. There’s a new episode every other Tuesday.
  6. Share your story: My PD Stories describe what it’s like to live with a Parkinson’s diagnosis. You can submit your own story or read the powerful experiences of others.
  7. Live Q&As: These recordings are focused on how the coronavirus affects those with Parkinson’s.
  8. Parkinson’s Helpline: This helpline is staffed by nurses, therapists, and social workers. Call 1-800-4PD-INFO from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday. Email helpline@parkinson.org any time.
