Living with PD

My name is Gary, I am 72yrs young. I was diagnosed one year ago and it was a life changing experience.
I have taken a very aggressive approach in dealing with my PD.
I have PT 3 times a week and speech therapy 4 times a week for 4 weeks.
I am still fairly independent…I do have 2 Aides to assist me.
My 1 Aide takes me to PT, Drs appt and any errands…the other Aide helps me with showering and light housekeeping.
