Webinar: Holistic & Supportive Care for Living Well with Parkinson’s

With Dr. Christopher Tarolli

This webinar was recorded live on November 4, 2020

If you’ve been living with Parkinson’s for any length of time, you’ve probably heard the terms holistic care, supportive care, or palliative care. But you may not know what they mean when it comes to your care, now and in the future. In this webinar, Dr. Christopher Tarolli discussed: 

  • What your medical team means when they talk to you about palliative care 
  • The types of providers who can deliver palliative care
  • The difference between person- and disease-centered care
  • How to make sure your core medical providers match your goals for care with your plan of care
  • How to advocate and receive the kind of supportive care you need even if your community doesn’t have a palliative or supportive care center for people with Parkinson’s
  • How to build your Parkinson’s roadmap
