My husband has had PD for 16 years. He was origanally repscribed Sinemet and permax that he was on for years.This took care og his shakes and the progression. The past about 8 years (up until2 yeras ago) I took care of him. We went thru a lot of trauma during the past 6 to 8 years. Illusions, anger and so many other things. Now we are in a Assisted Living community which at I recommend to anyone in the late stages. He is now wheelchair bound and they take complete care of him abnd I am free to do other things I wish. He is 88 years old. @ weeks ago they had to chage his meds agains as he was putting me thru he__. Now with the Serequel he is much better and so am I. I thank God for this. Now I just have to hang in there with him. We have been married for 58 years. It is hard to see your spouse go thru this terrible disease. It changes so often. You never know what it will be like next week. Dene
