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.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very informative book. I purchased this book when my father in law was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. This really helped us get an idea of what we were facing, and what to expect. We lost him due to a combination of Parkinson's and Dementia. If you are looking for this book because you have a loved one with this disease, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I highly recommend this product. Overall I am thoroughly satisfied with my purchase. I highly recommend this product. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. Have a great day!
