About PFNCA’s Parkinson’s Scorecard
The PFNCA’s Parkinson’s Scorecard covers key areas to think about in your management of Parkinson’s Disease, for instance:
Seeing a Movement Disorder Specialist – A Movement Disorder Specialist is a neurologist who has had additional training in Parkinson’s Disease and is best suited to support your care.
Physical Therapy for Parkinson’s – Many with Parkinson’s benefit from physical therapy. For example, LVST Big is a therapy regiment designed for Parkinson’s.
Speech Therapy for Parkinson’s – Many with Parkinson’s benefit from Speech Therapy as the disease impacts vocal cords. Furthermore, LVST Loud is a Speech Therapy regiment developed for Parkinson’s.
Hospitalization with Parkinson’s – Living with Parkinson’s and hospitalization for any condition impacts your care. There are steps you can take when hospitalized to improve your experience in that healthcare setting.
