Post Parkinson's Seminar
I attended a PD seminar today: Parkinson's Disease: More than a Tremor, from the NW Parkinson's Foundation. It was very well attended with good, well-prepared speakers. Although I was disappointed that LBD was not discussed, I was glad to hear the neurologist address neuroleptic drug warnings. She stated that Seroquel could be used in PD but that Haldol, Risperdal, Zyprexa and Abilify should not.

There was also a very interesting presentation by a speech pathologist about the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment Program, which has proved very successful in increasing voice volume in PD.

Pat [68] married to Derek [84] for 38 years; husband dx PDD/LBD 2005, probably began 2002 or earlier; late stage and in a SNF as of January 2011. Hospitalized 11/2/2013 and discharged to home Hospice. Passed away at home on 11/9/2013.
