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!

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.
