New treatments and advances in therapy for the ravages of Parkinson's disease are constantly being researched and perfected for patients, yet those afflicted still must endure tremors, poor balance, speech problems, and lessened psychological well-being. Patients and families need the most up-to-date information available to improve quality of care and life.This new, second edition of Caring for the Parkinson Patient covers a variety of topics, providing information and helpful suggestions for patients, families, and caregivers to aid them as they grapple with this chronic, debilitating neurological disorder. Sixteen accessible and information-packed essays by noted contributors address diagnosis and treatment, new research, communication, physical/ occupational therapy, nursing care, problems faced by the caregiver, emotional changes, "neurorehab," prevention of falls, sleep problems, surgery, community supports, the family, sexuality, and safe home environments.With a wealth of information, practical advice, and encouragement, Caring for the Parkinson Patient is an indispensable resource guide for all those touched by Parkinson's disease.

From Library Journal:

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder that afflicts at least 500,000 Americans over the age of 45. Neither cause nor cure has been found, although some progress has been made in treatment of symptoms. This is the first book written for patients, families, and caregivers, and it is extremely well done. Comprehensive information on the course of the disease, possible complications, and current research is combined with very practical chapters on medication, exercise, and emotional support. Very highly recommended. --Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty. P.L. System, West Palm Beach, Fla.
