Tips and Tricks

At WPC 2016 we filmed people with Parkinson's, advocates and experts sharing their Tips and Tricks for living well with Parkinson’s. These films are available to view in the Tips and Tricks Library under the relevant sections. It is intended that these films will create a 'heritage' of advice from advocates living with the condition from around the world. 

We are asking everyone who has a special tip or trick about any aspect of living with Parkinson’s to get involved! What have you found which makes a real difference to you – a quick daily exercise routine, a neat solution you’ve found for dealing with sleep problems, a simple change in your diet or medication regime that has made a difference and helped with your symptoms?

Please take part by sharing your tips and tricks on twitter using the following hashtag #PDTips&Tricks or by emailing Leah.
