Coming to Terms with Your Diagnosis

Getting a diagnosis of Parkinson’s affects everyone differently.

Some people want to find out lots at the beginning.  Others may take their time to explore what the condition might mean for them, and what support is available.

Whenever you are ready, we hope the information and links we will be adding to this page, will outline some of the main sources of support and guidance from Parkinson’s UK and other sources.
