My mom was diagnosed with it several weeks ago. We had a feeling as we noticed the hand shakes for about 3 months now. She is not coping well. It's in stage 1 as of now and she is going to physical therapy classes several times a week to help. She's in her mid-70's. There's no known history of this in our family line so it's quite shocking that all of a sudden she's got it.
Not sure what to do to help her other then spend more time with her to keep her distracted from it.
