A Wellness Prescription for Parkinson's: Mid to Late-Stage Disease.

The mid- to late-stages of Parkinson's disease (PD) bring increasing disability that may challenge independence and lower quality of life. Many people with PD struggle to remain hopeful and cope with an uncertain future due to the progression of the disease. Although disability in PD is due chiefly to motor impairment, nonmotor symptoms and psychosocial distress are also major contributors that are amenable to treatment. Interventions that address nonmotor symptoms and psychosocial distress can improve daily function and quality of life even as motor function worsens with disease progression. This manuscript proposes a patient-centered, proactive strategy to promote psychosocial adaptation to decrease the impact of motor, nonmotor, and psychosocial distress on quality of life and function in people with PD.
