Young Onset

Most people with Parkinson’s are diagnosed around the age of 63.  However, roughly 20 percent of those with Parkinson's are diagnosed before the age of 50 and 10 percent before the age of 40.

The term “young-onset” is used to describe those who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s earlier. As a "young-onset" person, your symptoms and progression may differ from those diagnosed at a more advanced age. Your place, or stage, in life is likely to be different as you may still be employed, have school-aged children and are not eligible for Medicare. We encourage you to visit www.YoungParkinsons.org for some wonderful tools especially designed for you.

We have many resources available to assist you. The Good Start Workshop can provide you with general information to help you get started. The Financial & Legal Wellbeing Workshop Series reviews employment, insurance, financial and legal planning issues that may be unique to those living with chronic illness. Our Library has books written for children to better explain Parkinson’s, as well as many other topics to help you live well.

If you would like to attend our next Young Onset Parkinson’s Support Group meeting, please email Andrea Temple at atemple@parkinsonsassociation.org, or for information please call 858-273-6763.
