9780199897780: Navigating Life with Parkinson's Disease

The American Academy of Neurology's (AAN) Neurology Now Books series answer the questions and concerns of patients and caregivers with specific neurologic diseases who are navigating a host of issues related to living-often long-term-with a neurologic illness.

Navigating Life with Parkinson's Disease is a guide for anyone affected by Parkinson's—patients, family members, friends, and caregivers. Containing the most up-to-date information on the disease, one of the most common nervous system diseases, it also discusses the available treatments and provides practical advice on how to manage the disease in the long term. Emphasizing life-style adjustments that will provide a better quality of life and moderate the burden for patients and their loved ones, Navigating Life with Parkinson's Disease answers many questions and clarifies misunderstandings regarding the disease.

While addressing all the relevant aspects of the disease, the authors do so in a manner that is approachable and easily understandable. Question and answer sections are provided, while "hot topics" are called out for easy visibility. The authors have also included true patient stories that will both inspire and instruct. The authors have also taken care to address several topics often not mentioned in physician-directed disease management, such as how to talk to family and friends about one's life with Parkinson's; what role the care partner can play, and what is the best way to help a loved one without facing burnout.

Promoting the patient-centered, multi- and multidisciplinary model of chronic disease management, Navigating Life with Parkinson's Disease empowers patients and their families with the necessary information to take charge of their health care.
