Parkinson’s Disease Support Group

This group includes persons with Parkinson’s, caregivers/spouses, and/or anyone that wants to know more about Parkinson’s.

Fourth Wednesday of the Month

Next meetings are: 

April 24, 2019 - Speaker:  Delia Mancoci, MD

  Doctor, I’m Dizzy! Is This My  Parkinson’s? 

It is all about recognizing and understanding symptoms associated with “dizziness” and other symptoms experienced by some of PD patients upon standing.

This presentation is for educational purposes only and is intended to provide general information on neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH); it is not intended to replace discussions with a healthcare provider. 

We’ll review what is blood pressure, what is orthostatic hypotension (OH), what is Neurogenic OH (NOH), causes, most common symptoms, non-pharmacological management.

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
