Often persons with Parkinson’s Disease are able to do an activity one minute then physically unable to do it the next. This video provides a comprehensive overview of Parkinson’s Disease symptoms, treatment and best practices in care. It is essential that long-term care providers recognize this disease and know how to handle the caregiving issues it presents.
