April is Parkinson’s Awareness month and Senior Helpers wants to help your loved one get the care they need. There are several resources that provide the education families need to understand and provide the right care for Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive condition that looks different for every individual dealing with the disease. Senior Helpers wants to provide you with information, resources, and the help you are looking for.
