Having a parent with Parkinson’s (PD), a neurodegenerative disease, can present some formidable challenges for adult children. The journey as they help their parent with PD is a marathon, not a sprint.
For many adult children, their first instinct upon learning of the diagnosis is to troll the Internet. Very often they find that quick answers to family challenges cannot be readily found.
