April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, which makes it a fine time to talk about the organization that provides information, support and education for those who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease (PD) as it provides a wealth of information useful in a disability claim.
The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) works to find a cure, to advance research, to increase knowledge, to empower the community and to ensure that those living with the disease enjoy the best quality of life possible. http://www.pdf.org/en/mission
This organization can provide valuable information for our clients and their families on topics that include: understanding the illness, coping with a recent diagnosis, managing PD and support for care partners and family. These are just a few examples of the many resources available on the PDF’s website. The website also offers helpful suggestions on living with PD and coping with the trials and difficulties that result from suffering from this progressive condition.
