we had a Parkinson Cafe meeting today.A very nice therapists was given help on domestic  tips for us.She mentioned a few tips.If tremors interfere with eating she suggested placing the serving elbow firmly on the table and pivoting the arm  to eat.Also she mentioned using a weighted arm band on the serving arm.weighted spoons and forks also help.She also demonstrated many special tools to help us get dressed.A automatic buttoner,A device to take off and put on pants and socks.Stretch shoe lases to make it easy putting on our shoes.

All in all it was a successful Cafe,Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
