Approximately one million Americans have Parkinson’s disease. This debilitating disease causes tremors, difficulty being heard or understood and challenges with everyday tasks such as showering, eating and writing. These symptoms pose significant challenges not only for people with the disease, but for their family members and caregivers as well.
