When you have Parkinson's disease, you may find that making simple changes to your home and in your daily activities can help you stay independent for a longer time.
Simplifying your daily activities may help you to save your energy for activities that really
demand it. It also may help to adjust your daily schedule so that your routine
is less stressful or tiring.
Physical therapists, occupational therapists, other people who have
the disease, and the people who care for them may be good sources of help and
If you have trouble moving around or become tired easily, it also may
help to make a few changes in your home.
An occupational therapist can assist in making these and other
changes to your home, including helping you to find ways to make
dressing, bathing, and eating easier.
