      There are many adaptive options for people with PD.  Since I have problems tying my shoes, I now use athletic lace locks.  They can be purchased at amazon and also at running stores.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       I also found these aids for gripping a pen helpful with my handwriting.  I purchased these on Amazon as well.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      What adaptive, devices, options or solutions have you found useful?

      Several months ago, my daughter and I were having lunch.  She noticed one of the buttons on my shirt was unfastened.  When I tried to button it, she noticed I was struggling with it because of the fine motor control issues associated with Parkinson’s.  A few days later, a package arrived in the mail, containing a beautiful men’s shirt.  I unwrapped it and tried it on.  The buttons, including the cuffs, snapped together because of small magnets.  Dressing, with that shirt anyway, became a pleasure.

      After thanking her and letting her see what it looked like, a few days later another package arrived, containing 4 more shirts, all different in color patterns but all with the magnetized buttons.

      They look great!  I’ve gotten many compliments and it has made dressing much easier.  Here’s a link to their website.  https://www.magnaready.com  They can also be found on Amazon.  One cautionary note:  Their website warns people with pacemakers should consult with their PCP before wearing these.
