Parkinson’s disease is a chronic condition that requires regular follow-up care to ensure that symptoms are properly managed. Each person with Parkinson’s disease faces different challenges and can benefit from a personalized treatment plan.
Specialists at NYU Langone’s Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders provide ongoing care and medication management for people with Parkinson’s disease, as well as a variety of support services.
Social workers at NYU Langone offer supportive services for people with Parkinson’s disease, as well as for their families and caregivers. Our social workers develop individualized support plans to meet a person’s needs and goals as they change over time.
Social workers identify a person’s strengths and areas of concern then tap into a broad range of resources in order to provide referrals and care coordination. They also provide education and counseling for people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers and families.
NYU Langone’s Fresco Institute offers support groups for people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers. Experienced professionals lead the groups, which are offered at no charge.
Adults with Parkinson’s disease may benefit from participating in clinical trials. During a clinical trial, promising new medications, medical devices, or other treatments are tested in scientifically controlled settings. These studies are required for the approval of new therapies.
The Fresco Institute maintains an active research program dedicated to helping our doctors gain a better understanding of the causes of Parkinson’s disease. Our experts investigate new therapies that may improve symptoms or slow disease progression.
You and your doctor can decide if a clinical trial is right for you.
