Parkinson's Tips and Tricks: Improve Your Daily Activities

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 7:00pm via ZOOM

 

Presented by: Quinn Hanses, Occupational Therapist, MPF Intern

This talk will help you understand what occupational therapy is, explore how you can improve your everyday occupations (e.g., hygiene, dressing, eating, functional mobility), and answer any questions related to everyday difficulties you may have. For example, does tremor affect your handwriting or eating? Maybe you could benefit from weighted silverware, built-up handles, or new electric adaptive devices. 

Come listen and let's share resources and brainstorm together!
