What is Parkinson's Disease?

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects dopamine-producing neurons in a specific area of the brain called “substantia nigra”. The cause remains unknown, although there is no cure, treatment options vary and often include medications and surgery. Despite that Parkinson’s itself is not fatal, disease complications can be serious.

We know things can be overwhelming. Our caregivers have experience assisting with all these situations and more.
