Palliative care is a patient-focused approach to care and treatment that can provide relief from both the symptoms and stress of Parkinson’s, improving quality of life for the person with PD as well as their care partners and family. Palliative care is provided by a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support that is based on the needs of the person with PD, rather than the stage or course of their disease. Join us for an overview of palliative care and how it can benefit you and your family.
