"A book filled with tips that will help you make life easier for someone you care about or for yourself. This book begins with the basic concepts of living with PD and proceeds to help you with such subjects as home safety, grooming, communication, mealtimes, exercise, medication, and also broaches the subject of cars and driving." -- The Nashville News

About the Author

Shelley Peterman Schwarz and her husband, Dave, live in Madison, Wisconsin. At the time of her diagnosis in 1979, Shelley was working part-time as a teacher of the deaf. Since 1985 she has published more than 300 articles and received numerous awards including the Mother of the Year from the Wisconsin Chapter of the National MS Society, the Partner in Health award from the Combined Health Appeal of America, and the Spirit of the American Woman award from J.C. Penney. Her nationally syndicated, ""Making Life Easier"" column appears in numerous newspapers and magazines across the country.

More About the Author

Shelley Peterman Schwarz is an award-winning author, columnist, and popular radio and TV personality, who just happens to have a disability. Shelley shares tips and strategies she has learned for living well despite chronic illness, disability, or age related limitations to benefit others with physical limitations and the people who love, care for, and work with them.

When diagnosed with the primary progressive form of multiple sclerosis (MS)in 1979, Shelley's life changed in ways that could never have been imagined. With two preschoolers at home and losing abilities daily, Shelley had to find new ways to do everyday tasks. Her "Eureka!" moment occurred one day while making a peanut butter sandwich; the bread tore and her children refused to eat it. Her solution: freeze the bread so she could spread the peanut butter without tearing it. That was the first of thousands of tips and strategies that eventually became the basis for articles published in such publications as Family Circle, Special Living, Inside MS, and Arthritis Today, to name a few and the popular Tips for Making Life Easier series of books. Shelley has been a featured and keynote presenter at conferences nationwide and conducts teleclasses and Webinars for audiences around the world.

I purchased 2 copies of this book after researching available books on the topic. Gave 1 to my step-dad and 1 to my mother-in-law. They both have found this book VERY helpful. My mother-in-law refers to almost daily. At her request I purchased a 3 copy for her nephew who also has this horrible disease. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has the disease.

Among many helpful things the section on obsessive/compulsive behavior resulting from sinemet medication enabled me to adjust medication to reduce inappropriate behavior.

This is a great book. I had to learn through trial and error and with a lot of research ways to cope with Parkinson's i.e. make mobility, speech, and access easier. This would've saved me tons of time if I bought it earlier. And it gave me a lot of new ideas.

My Husband and I both enjoyed this book. There were so many tips and ways to do things that will make my husband's life a little better. My husband freezes a lot and has a hard time walking but with your tip of lifting your legs and marching has made it a lot easier for him to walk. Everyone that has Parkinson's and their care takers should read this book
