    Wow-this is such a great resource for aids and assistive devices for Parkinson’s. I had never seen the swivel, motorized passenger car chair (Bruno). Once our Parkinson’s person can’t get in or out of the car, that ends the transportation possibility- Even getting to the doctor’s office can be impossible. Of course I didn’t check the price-probably sticker shock but at least that option is a possibility. Thanks for all the research and hard work that went into vetting this extensive resource list! We will use it for our caregivers’ meeting.

      I truly hope it can help others, Christy, and thanks for your kind words!

    Hi Kathrynne,
    Remember me from CSU? Diet & Disease was a course I taught regularly. I’m so proud of what you have accomplished in your career! It turns out I was dx with PD 18 years ago. I’m now active in the Parkinson’s Support Group in Larimer County, which draws close to 100 attendees, including care partners. Our Leadership Team is clamoring for a presentation on nutrition. They have tentatively scheduled this topic for January 5, 2019. Although I understand that you are retired now, i’m contacting you anyway on the remote hope that you might consider returning to your alma mater town to grace us with a nutrition presentation! As a non-profit organization, we generally lack funds for a speaker’s fee but would at least reimburse travel expenses. It would be a real honor and pleasure to see you again after all these years and to learn from your years of experience! Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
