    October is Disability Employment Awareness Month, or DEAM. The purpose of DEAM is to promote employment inclusion for people with disabilities and celebrate the many and varied contributions of workers with disabilities.

    As a person with Parkinson’s, do you identify as a person with a disability? If you do and you’re still working, in what ways has your employer made accommodations to support you? Do you think that living with a disability has enhanced your ability to do your job in any way? In what ways has it made it more difficult?

    If you have stopped working, how did your diagnosis impact your decision, if at all?

    If you’re a caregiver for someone with PD, do you have a full-time or part-time job in addition to caregiving? How has caregiving enhanced or challenged your ability to work?
