This chapter covers two of the most prevalent neurological disorders, Parkinson's disease (PD) and multiple sclerosis (MS). Although both diseases typically can be quite debilitating and impact a person's entire life, social workers have been largely absent from involvement in the care of persons and families living with these diseases. The chapter aims to provide readers with a beginner's understanding of both PD and MS as they impact individuals and families, so that informed care and referrals can be provided. Social workers have an opportunity to make a true contribution to practice with and research about persons and caregivers affected by neurological disorders such as PD and MS.

Keywords:   Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, elderly, aging, social work practice, neurological disorders
