The Every Victory Counts manual is a photography-rich, interactive manual developed by the Davis Phinney Foundation in collaboration with co-authors Dr. Monique Giroux and Sierra Farris, experts in Parkinson’s treatment and self-care. It features contributions from leading movement disorder experts from respected institutions across the country. More than 50 people with Parkinson’s share their personal insights and experiences, lending authenticity and a welcome sense of humor.

In addition to covering the spectrum of symptoms from diagnosis through advanced stages of Parkinson’s, the Every Victory Counts manual addresses important topics, such as: the range of available therapeutic options, Parkinson’s disease progression, young onset Parkinson’s, talking to children about the disease, exercise, nutrition, emotional health, deep brain stimulation, Parkinson’s medications, care partner concerns, intimacy and the importance of staying engaged.

Readers are encouraged to turn to their copy of the Every Victory Counts manual often, as needs and interests change. Replenish worksheets by downloading from our website, and stay up to date and motivated with videos, Living Well Challenge webinars and stories from others who are living well with Parkinson’s.

The Every Victory Counts program manual has been endorsed by the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Below, co-author Dr. Giroux discusses the benefits of the Every Victory Counts approach and offer tips for getting the most out of your manual.
