Caregiver Help Radio – Living with Parkinson’s

When a person is told he/she has Parkinson’s Disease, it can be tremendously frightening. You want to know how it will progress. You’ll ask what treatments are available. You’ll want to know how it’s going to change your life and the lives of your loved ones. You might even ask how bad it’s going to get and how long you will live. These are questions that no one will be able to answer with certainty. Every person’s experience with Parkinson’s is unique. Although it is a degenerative and progressive disease with no known cure, you will discover in today’s program that there is a whole lot of living that can go on after you receive a diagnosis. Join us as we visit with John Baumann, speaker and author of the book, “Decide Success . . . You Ain’t Dead Yet”, and Vicki Conte, the Program Manager over Community and Department Education in the Department of Neurology at Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
