What you should know about Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive disease of the nervous system that primarily affects older adults. It typically begins after age 50. The disease can be very hard to live with because it severely restricts mobility, making daily activities increasingly difficult. Many people will eventually require 24/7 nursing home care. While effective treatments exist to relieve some symptoms, there is no cure.
