JOSEPH T. MANCINI replied to the topic Will you continue to get COVID boosters and vaccines? in the forum Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Parkinson’s 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Yes I will get any and all boosters as they become available.
The leading causes of death for PD people are falls and pneumonia.
JOSEPH T. MANCINI replied to the topic What kind of footwear do you prefer? in the forum Living With Parkinson's Disease 1 year ago
I have become a big fan of GeckoMan. These are solidly-made orthotic shoes in slip-on, lace-up, and slipper models, and they are very reasonably priced. I own several pairs in all forms. They help me maintain good posture, and they are great for my workouts and walking. Available on-line.

Absolutely! I have had three shots of the Moderna, and when more is called for, I will get it. I also get the seasonal flu shot, the “oldster” version.
Falls and pneumonia kill more PD patients than anything.

Yes, I bump into things, especially at night when I have to get up to relieve myself. I will frequently find some bruises, bumps and small cuts and wonder how I got them.
