We have long term health care, but I'm not aware of what we need to do in order to invoke it. Do you have any recommendations?

Our long term health care is excellent and includes home support. I am my wife's sole care giver, but I may need a hip replacement in the near future. I am also concerned that if Parkinson's progresses more we may need to leave our home, in order to get additonal support. Do we get a letter from our Neurologist or what is needed to invoke long term health care?

The company you have the long term health care with should be able to let you know what you need to invoke that care. I would contact them.

Should we bring up DBS to our neurologist?

My husband has PD with some cognitive loss. He is also on dialysis for end stage kidney disease. After his treatment his tremors are often severe. He is on sinimet and levo/dopa. I believe they are clearing his meds from his system
He also is only out of be for about 6-8 hours a day.

Has anyone had an inconclusive DaTScan?

My DaTScan was inconclusive. I have many symptoms of PD minus tremors. The PA and neurologist say I have Chorea movements. They have been unable to provide a diagnosis. Any ideas?
