About the Book

A complete guide to Parkinson's from two people with the disease who cofounded a national support and advocacy organization.

In Living Well with Parkinson's Disease, Gretchen Garie and Michael J. Church, a couple who both have Parkinson's and live daily with the effects of the disease, thoroughly discuss diagnosis, treatment options, and the emotional consequences of this difficult illness. With a conversational, pragmatic, and personal tone, they offer advice on such topics as:

  • how Parkinson's disease affects relationships
  • the role of diet, supplements, and rest and relaxation
  • strategies for navigating professional life and the maze of the health-care system
  • handling everyday challenges such as buttoning a shirt or rolling over in bed
  • and more!

Compassionate and inspiring, Living Well with Parkinson's Disease offers knowledge and wisdom from those who understand the challenges of dealing with Parkinson's every day.
