Aware in Care
With more frequent hospital visits and a high sensitivity to the timing and dosing of Parkinson’s medications, people with Parkinson’s face great risks in the hospital.
To protect, prepare and empower people with Parkinson’s before, during and after a hospital visit, National Parkinson Foundation has developed a free Aware in Care kit with tools and information to share with hospital staff during a planned or emergency hospital stay.
Order your free Aware in Care kit through the National Parkinson Foundation.
