07 Apr: Building Your Parkinson’s Care Team

Living well with Parkinson’s means living well in all aspects of your life—physical, mental, social, spiritual. One provider can’t possibly treat every part of your life, so, ideally, over time, you will build a holistic, integrated care team and plan that is personalized to YOUR symptoms, needs, and goals. In the beginning, your primary care physician and neurologist or movement disorder specialist may be the only two people you need on your care team. However, your team may grow to include anywhere from three to ten or more providers over the years. Everyone is different, and not everyone will need the same types and number of providers. To give you an idea of the many professionals who can help you live well with Parkinson’s every day, here are some to consider.
