Welcome to More Than Motion™

for people living with Parkinson's

Welcome to More Than Motion™

Welcome to Parkinson’s More Than Motion™, a community dedicated to portraying the full realities of living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). If you or someone you love lives with PD, you probably already know it’s most recognizable symptoms -- tremors, stiffness, or slowness, which can affect movement. What you may not realize is that PD affects more than motion. Other symptoms of PD can include sleep disturbance, fatigue or trouble with memory. Join the More Than Motion™ conversation and get a glimpse at real lives of people with PD to find out how they cope day to day, and how they aim to keep active and involved with life despite the challenges that Parkinson’s disease can present. We hope these stories inspire you to share your story, learn from others and get involved in the PD community.
