Whether you have Parkinson’s Disease, or have a friend, family member, or loved one with Parkinson’s, sifting through information on the internet can be daunting. We recently learned that the National Parkinson’s Foundation has created a very easy to use iPad and Smartphone app designed “to help patients and family members access information wherever and whenever they need it” The Parkinson’s Central app can be downloaded free from iTunes. One handy feature is that it can use your zip code, or the device GPS to locate local Parkinson’s resources.
We did find that patients with advanced Parkinson’s had an easier time accessing the information on an iPad because of the larger buttons.
Filled with concise, easy-to-understand information and useful tips for living well with Parkinson’s, this app is indeed a very useful tool. If you have not downloaded this app yet, we encourage you to give it a try.
