Everyone reacts differently to being diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Some people will feel anxiety, anger or fear, others may deny the diagnosis and for some it can even feel like a relief. Having a range of emotions and reactions is normal.
If you have just been diagnosed, or you are caring or supporting someone who has, we have information and support for you. There are treatments to help manage the symptoms and support services available to help get the most out of life, maintain independence and to continue to enjoy all that life has to offer.
