Welcome to Health Unmuted

Communication is vital for all parts of life, but Parkinson’s disease can greatly impact cognition and speaking.

That’s where a speech and language pathologist comes in – helping with common problems like drooling, swallowing, concentration and talking. 

In this episode, we hear from a speech and language pathologist about different ways to improve communication and swallowing difficulties after diagnosis. 

We also hear from people with Parkinson’s disease about what it’s like to live with these challenges, and what adaptations have been most helpful in overcoming them.
