Trying to Cope with Parkinson's and a Husband Who Has Dementia

Last updated: March 2021

It’s very hard at times, I love my husband dearly, but it’s getting more difficult for me.

Swinging and swaying

I have had Parkinson's for more than 15 yrs and I have been lucky until lately. Not had too many of the side effects, mind you I take a lot of medication, but for last few months I have been swinging and swaying a lot and it feels embarrassing at times.

I’m not sure what if anything I can do about it.... Anyone have ideas? I hope I can find some help. Thanks.
