BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) – More than 90,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year. Many are struggling with this disease to do things for themselves, but there is one organization that hopes to change that.
The Dakota Center for Independent Living helps Parkinson’s support find new tools to adapt to the disease. The organization provides items such as modified tubes, shoelaces, and medicine bottle openers.
“It can help you in the kitchen, it can help you in your everyday life. It just makes it so much easier,” said Kathy Temchak, attorney.
More than one million people in the US are living with Parkinson’s disease.
