Thanksgiving and Christmas functions can be awkward for many reasons: seeing distant family after many years, eating dinner with relatives you can’t stand, having drinks with mutual friends that annoy you, and so on. But for those living with Parkinson’s Disease, these get-togethers can be even more stressful.
Explaining the disease to your cousin’s new fiancé or trying not to knock over a vase because of tremors can be difficult. The Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center recognizes these issues and wants to help.
On November 17, the Institute will present ways that those living with Parkinson’s can deal with daily life-particularly during the holiday season. The program will run from 1:30pm until 3:30pm at the Institute, located at 675 Almanor Avenue. RSVP at (408) 734-2800 by November 10 to secure your space.
