Webinar: Advanced Parkinson’s Care & Estate Planning

Our October webinar, Advanced Parkinson’s Care & Estate Planning, tackled many important topics such as the daily management of Advanced PD, the lived experience of patients, and tools to help you plan for the future.

Speakers included Dr. Sean Udow, Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba and Neurologist at the Movement Disorders Clinic, who spoke about what care is needed for those living with advanced stages of Parkinson’s.

We also heard from PD patient AB Rustin, who shared how she is dealing with the demands brought on by advanced stages of Parkinson’s.

Finally, Erin Bury, Co-founder and CEO of Willful, presented the ins and outs of Estate Planning so you can be better prepared to put your affairs in order and ensure your loved ones are taken care of.

Thank you to all the speakers and participants who were able to join us, to Naseem Jamal for moderating the discussion, and to the Programs & Services team at Parkinson Canada for putting this together.
