Getting the Most Out of the parkinson.ca Website

05_Feb2014_ParkinsonDotCaParkinson Society Canada (PSC) provides a variety of online resources to support individuals, families and health professionals affected by Parkinson’s. Our online resources may be able to provide answers to the questions you have about this complex neurodegenerative disease.

For People with Parkinson’s:
An important first step is learning the basics of Parkinson’s disease, such as motor and non-motor symptoms, rate of progression, and personalized care and treatment plans.  All of this information can be found on our “What is Parkinson’s” page.

Other helpful resources for people with Parkinson’s include:

If English or French is not your preferred language, Parkinson Society Canada provides the most common education resources in five other languages: German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Punjabi.

For Caregivers:
Caregivers play a vital role in supporting individuals with Parkinson’s.  However, managing the responsibilities and demands of a caregiver can be difficult.  The information provided on our website can help support caregivers in their role.

Online resources for Parkinson’s care partners include:

For Health Care Professionals

Physicians and allied health professionals are key members of the Parkinson’s care team. The Canadian Guidelines on Parkinson’s Disease, available at www.parkinsonclinicalguidelines.ca, provides family doctors and other health professionals with evidence based recommendations to help diagnose and properly treat their Parkinson’s patients.

Other useful resources for health care professionals include:

Shared Experiences

We often hear from people with Parkinson’s that they learn the most from others who share their experience with the disease. PSC provides inspirational stories from Canada’s Parkinson’s community, available on our website at Stories from the Front.

If you have a story you’d like to share with us and others affected by Parkinson’s, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us at communications@parkinson.ca with your story idea and we’ll get in touch.
