AbbVie Patient Advocate Program

The Abbvie Parkinson’s Disease Advocate program is a no-cost program available to patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and their carer’s. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with PD for many years, a PD Advocate can help you learn more about your PD, how to find resources to help you live with the disease and identify a team of healthcare professionals who help you manage your disease progression.

An AbbVie Parkinson’s Disease Advocate can:

Educate you about PD and what you might expect during your journey.

Support you as you deal with your concerns.

Prepare you for meaningful conversations with your doctor.

Help you identify resources, including a Movement Disorder Specialist, who focuses on the treatment of PD.

Share the benefits of a holistic care team (i.e.: How a speech therapist can help you as your PD progresses).

To learn more go to www.pdadvocates.com or call Cathy DeLave, RN, Parkinson's Disease Advocate at 248-563-3208
