My mother has had PD for over 25 years and in the last 3 years she has been going downhill. She underwent DBS last year and they have been adjusting her meds since. My father is around the house most of the time. One of the problems I'm having is getting them to accept that they need to make changes to make it easier for my mom - getting rid of the throw rugs, clearing out the hallways, uncluttering the house, etc? If I start clearing out, she get's upset with me for "throwing all her stuff away". Does anyone else have this problem or suggestions?

I had the same problem with my husband. The MD sent in an Occupational Therapist who listed the hazards and made several good recommendations regarding grab bar and furniture placement. He seemed to take it from her, I assume because of her credentials. That might be worth a try.
