PARKINSON'S DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH
LIVING WITH PARKINSON’S
We understand the impact Parkinson’s disease can have on you and your loved ones. The loss of independence can be frustrating and emotionally draining for patients and carers alike. That’s why we’re committed to developing therapies that have a real impact on patient quality of life. Many people with Parkinson’s regain the ability to perform daily activities, so they and their loved ones can get back to living life - together.
Hear from people from around the world who have Parkinson's disease and their carers and how they are getting on with their lives.
