The PRESS Program (Parkinson’s Roadmap for Education and Support Services) was designed for those diagnosed with PD within the last 5 years.

APDA Take Control Series

Parkinson’s disease is a complex disorder with new challenges to face as the disease progresses.  The more educated a patient and family becomes the more they are able to Take Control of their disease.  Experts in the field will educate and prepare you to recognize these challenges and learn how to manage them with practical tools and greater knowledge so that you can live life to the fullest.

Carepartner Support Programs

When someone you love is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD), it is natural to feel a range of emotions from confusion to anger to fear.  Taking care of yourself is as important as caring for your loved one with PD.  APDA is here to help with resources and support programs designed specifically for you.
