Parkinson’s Disease is a neurological disease that affects all parts of a person’s body. It impairs motor skills and can cause dementia. There are many Parkinson’s-type disorders. Each one is a little different, but each is the same in that it eventually become debilitating. Parkinson’s is probably best known as causing tremors in the hands that eventually spreads through the body making caring for one’s self difficult. Parkinson’s Disease usually begins when a person is in his/her 50’s or 60’s and become a life-long battle to maintain independence. Parkinson’s Disease touches every area of the individual’s life. Care partners and family, especially spouses, are also affected.
