Format: Paperback
Parkinson's is a movement disorder which affects 500,000 people in the US and adds thousands of new cases annually, but despite its prevalence, families often have little resources to guide them in considering treatment options, drug trail potentials, family dynamics, and disruptions and adjustments to daily living. Parkinson's Disease And The Family: A New Guide addresses all manner of family concerns and is a top pick for this reason, going where competitors do not in addressing the daily living challenges of Parkinson's. Especially appropriate for the non-specialist general reader, Parkinson's Disease And The Family is ideal for community libraries.

19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By J. Romano on May 18, 2006
Format: Paperback
A comprehensive collection of current and on-going research, treatments and case studies, this amazingly small book provides a great summary of everything you will read about Parkinson's in random web searches. The best part is that it is completely comprehensible for the lay person. I especially recommend this book for family members such as parents and siblings who may not be involved in day to day care-partnering with the Parkinson's Patient, but who may want to have an understanding of what is happening (and what is going to happen) to their family member.

These books were purchased by our PD Support Group and donated to the Berrien County libraries as part of April Parkinson Awareness Month. Many people will certainly be more knowledgable about Parkinson.

Format: Hardcover
"The IKE Disease," is a one on one counseling session with the reader (teenagers) encouraging them to make decisions leading to a happy, successful life. IKE is used in high schools for group counseling and is always well received by the students. The book is a must read for parents, and their children, because it sets forth positive concepts for young people. There many good books written instructing parents on raising their children. IKE is different in that it offers positive steps, encouraging teenagers to do something to help themselves.
