Valencia Shores

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disease.  It is being diagnosed with increased frequency and research has  identified seven markers, some prevalent in Ashkenazic Jews.   Most medical professionals will tell us that people don’t die from Parkinson’s but rather they die with Parkinson’s.  Education for the person with Parkinson’s, their caregiver and family is the key to coping with this disease.
