Fact: An estimated seven to 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease. People living with Parkinson’s disease have unique needs and challenges. As a result, those living alone or with other family members are often faced with many challenges that can affect their ability to succeed at home independently. Challenges may include incontinence or constipation, medication management motion impairment, speech impairment, swallowing difficulties, and nutritional management.
