My dad is 78 and has Parkinson's Disease, my husband and I our caregivers to him. He struggles with his motor skills and it breaks my heart to watch him struggle to do some things. My mom died 3 years ago and he is still living at home. He has an alert system, home health comes twice a week to bath him and a nurse once a week. I cook things for him and freeze some things and so does others in the family. He still cooks his eggs and some other things. He is doing awesome but I can see some changes, but has a great appetite and does a lot for himself. He has a great Dr that works to make things easier for him. He has lots of faith and is always trying to take of all of us. I would love to have other share with me any experience they have with Parkinson's. In the photo we are taking him to his favorite eating place! Thanks!

Yes it is, we had to take him to dr today and went out for breakfast, he tried to pick up a biscuit with jelly on it and struggled to pick it up and said I can't eat that. I just told him sure you can, I cut it into bites and told him to use his fork to pick it up! Worked perfect for him!
