Overview
Here is a marvelous guide for anyone affected by Parkinson's disease--patients, caregivers, family members, and friends. Containing the most up-to-date information on the disease, one of the most common neurological disorders, it discusses the available treatments and provides practical advice on how to manage the disease in the long term. Emphasizing life-style adjustments that will provide a better quality of life and moderate the burden for patients and their loved ones, the book answers many questions and clarifies misunderstandings regarding the disease. Written by two experts on Parkinson's disease and a freelance journalist, the book is approachable and easily understandable. Question and answer sections are provided, while "hot topics" are highlighted for easy visibility. The authors have also included true patient stories that will both inspire and instruct, and they have addressed several topics often not mentioned in physician-directed disease management, such as how to talk to family and friends about one's life with Parkinson's. Features: * Provides easy-to-read formats whenever possible, such as bulleted lists * Contains out-of-text bowed key-points to help ease the assimilation of important information contained in longer passages * A question-and-answer format is used in chapters dealing with practical information about which patients and their families may need to take the lead since they are not often brought up by physicians * Important terms appear in bold and are defined on the page at first mention
