Financial Wellness Awareness Month

Did You Know That January Is Financial Wellness Awareness Month?
Financial planning can be challenging for people
with Parkinson's when your wage earning ability is interrupted. This provides all the more reason to
develop a workable financial plan early and stick
to it. Taking a big picture approach will help you
move forward in spite of life's challenges. Our
online financial section offers tips on Medicare
eligibility, options, plans, costs, enrollment
windows, seeking help and planning ahead.

your donation go farther. Many companies
encourage employees to donate to their favorite
charities by matching their contributions, in some
cases dollar-for-dollar or more. Check with your
