Educational Programs for People with Parkinson's and their Families

Living with Parkinson's

This education series of six or seven weeks, geared to people living with Parkinson's disease (people with PD, family, friends) was originally created in 1981 by health professionals at Harper Hospital in Detroit. The course, conducted for 2 to 2-1/2 hours once a week, is designed to provide the latest information on what Parkinson's disease is, available treatment and therapies, and coping. One facilitator is available throughout the program and various health professionals provide presentations and discussions. These presenters include a neurologist, nurse, physical and occupational therapists, a speech and language pathologist, and a social worker and/or psychologist. Frequently, the program includes people successfully coping with PD.
