I live with Parkinson's

We understand that the announcement
of the diagnosis is a difficult ordeal.

Remember that during your life, you have faced other obstacles and that you have overcome them thanks to your inner resources or thanks to the help of loved ones. You can once again mobilize these resources to live well with Parkinson’s disease.

You can find the spark of motivation within you that will enable you to make changes in your lifestyle and in your approach to activities.
