  • The financial impact of Parkinson's

    It’s impossible to deny that Parkinson’s disease impacts all areas of our lives, including our financial well-being and stability. How was has having PD affected you financially? Did you have to stop working/retire? Do you have adequate health coverage to pay for treatments, physio, etc.? Have you had to sell or alter your home in order to live more easily/comfortably? Are you worried about your financial future?

    My job is teaching English, sitting in a room, 1-4 students at a time, zero stress. I love it and they’ll have to pull be out feet first; I wouldn’t retire if I won the lottery. I live in Catalonia, which has a very good healthcare system and subsidizes to a great extent the cost of prescription drugs. So in my case there has been no financial impact.
