My mother was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's. My sister and I needed to understand it and know how to better help her. We needed something that is both readable and informative. This Dummy book exactly filled that need.
This book is a very solid overview of Parkinson's Disease, starting with symptoms, tests & diagnosis, and continuing through treatments on to what to expect in advanced stages. There is a good section on caregiving, although the book is primarily aimed at the PD patient directly. It is but an overview though, so while each topic is generally explained, you may wish to delve into certain topics more deeply using other resources.
Very helpful book. (I feel a bit dumb for not reading this sooner.) I flagged a number of things to return to, as well as, to work on.
Good basic introduction to Parkinson's. Gives conventional advice on how to deal with it.
