Parkinson's Resources


I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that can be a constant source of information that you don't have to hunt through the website to find. I've found that I constantly recommend certain brands, equipment, or services to clients and I wanted to make sure it was easy to access at all times. I update this page often so make sure you bookmark it for your reference and convenience!

Disclosure: Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase. Please understand that if I recommend a certain product, service, or person it's because I have experience with them and recommend them because they're helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend money on these items unless you feel you need them or that they'll help you achieve your health goals.

Services

These are some of the most useful and convenient services that I've found to help you access fresh, whole, healthy foods at affordable prices. I know most people with Parkinson's have limited abilities to shop, cook, and afford healthy food and these services are great tools to help you overcome those obstacles.
