Newcomer to the Forum

My wife was diagnosed with PD in February 2020 in her early sixties. Biggest impact is to lower body mobility and the current use of Co-Beneldopa appears to have fixed upper body issues. WWP works very hard at daily exercises and various studying to keep an active brain.
I’m in my mid sixties and, touch wood, so far fit and healthy.
I have joined the forum to try and learn more about how PD may impact our lives in the future and how we might fight against the progression.
I’m also interested in learning more about the medications, treatments and research.
