Hello Jude, welcome to the forum. My husband is 68 and has been diagnosed for about 4 years. It opens a lifeline on the PD site, so much support and advice. The forum has been a great support to me, it has been difficult at times and I have felt alone, but I came on here and someone has always responded.
By joining a local PD group you will find out what you have in your area. My husband has great medical support and a very good neurologist. The physios help a lot and we now have a PD nurse. The medication can be quite a problem but can also, when right, help so much.
I hope you find what you need on here. flo
