Preparing for the First Parkinson's Disease Fall

Preparing for the First Time

Having an emergency plan is the first step in preparation. For those without an in home caregiver the first step would be to enlist a family member, neighbor, or close friend that is reliable and easily available who is aware of the condition and can arrive quickly on scene when the tumble happens. Barring that an emergency medical communications device preferably one that can be worn on the body, can alert emergency personnel as well as the police should be the second step in preparation.
