Recently diagnosed with PD

Stay positive. Register yourself with myagedcare if you are an Australian citizen. You can ask myagedcare to send an OT to visit you and assess your situation. OT should guide you from there to get the necessary help and support.

Getting involved in hobbies

Both my husband and I have PD but we got a good social network. We participate in a seniors club once a week. We play walking soccer once a week. We also sing in the church choir. So get yourself involved in something. Do some gardening or sewing or knitting. Keep your mind occupied at all times.
