    Falls, Sleep, and Autonomic dysfunction in persons with Parkinson’s disease

    in Health

    Over 3000 people with Parkinson’s disease completed Parkinson Alliance surveys in 2014. Learn about how these common motor and non-motor symptoms affect quality of life, and what you can do about it.


    If you are someone living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), a spouse or other family member, or a health care professional, you will want to listen to November’s podcast when I am joined by Carol Walton, CEO of the Parkinson Alliance, and neuropsychologist, Jeffrey Wertheimer, PhD, who will discuss findings of the top surveys from 2014.


    DBS4PD.org (www.dbs4PD.org) is a web based community founded by the President of the Parkinson Alliance, Margaret Tuchman, DBS-STN patient. DBS4PD.org is gaining a national reputation for its surveys which provide an opportunity for persons living with Parkinson’s and their caregivers to share what matters most to them about a variety of important topics. The Parkinson Alliance surveys are a unique opportunity for you, someone living with Parkinson’s to have a voice in what matters to you, and in turn, survey findings help to provide answers for members of the PD community.

    Pam Carey: Caring for Elderly Parents With All Their Marbles - A Survival Guide

    in Spirituality

    A lot is written about seeing our parents through dementia, but not much is available to discuss what it takes to deal with parents who might need our assistance, but who still have all their faculties. How do we finesse a parent who wants to maintain their independence into moving nearer to us; into giving us Power of Attorney to take care of their healthcare and financial needs; to accept daily help?  How do we do this while allowing them to maintain their dignity?


    With honesty and insight borne of experience, through Elderly Parents With All Their Marbles: A Survival Guide for the Kids, author Pam Carey shares her personal journey as well as the (humorously serious) "Rules of the Road" she developed while caring for her parents.


    Anyone who has ever had to care for elderly parents will see their own situations reflected in this witty yet practical guide to surviving the ordeal. You will feel like you’re right by Pam's side as she outlines 49 essential points for navigating the trials of elderly living, the medical issues and the inevitable loss that eventually comes. She illustrates each point with her own sometimes hilarious and often poignant experiences.


    This book is a must-read as a resource for anyone dealing with assisting an aging loved one. Please consider purchasing a copy as a gift for a friend, care facility or YOUR children.


    Pam wrote the book as a resource for others facing similar journeys. She is also the author of Minor League Mom, A Mother's Journey Through the Red Sox Farm Teams (2009). The mother of Red Sox farm team veterans Tim and Todd Carey, Pamela holds a B.A. from Colby College and an M.A. from Columbia University Teachers College.

    The number of persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) is expected to double worldwide by 2030, many persons living with Parkinson’s disease around the world cannot afford:



    Consultation with a neurologist or,
    Medications for their treatment,
    An electric tooth brush and other basic healthcare supplies,
    A walker, wheelchair or cane, to reduce fall risk, and
    Lack access to educational literature about Parkinson’s and hence are without necessary information about their disease.

    First, I (Judith Kahealani Lynne) began to notice the abundant gifts offered by the conditions of PD. It was demanding that I attend to the needs of my body including diet, exercise, and energy maintenance. I decided to “Partner with Parkinson’s” rather than to suffer from it. With minimal dosages of the PD pharmaceuticals I built my strength and stamina so that I could focus on holistic protocols. As my condition improved I began to offer meditations and private sessions. After a few months, I noticed how my sound healing and voice work were restoring my health and vitality......for more on this story go to www.spiritualimageproductions.com/Andrew_Aloha_Live
