Specialist care to support people with Parkinson's
Parkinson's Care

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition but with the right care & support you should be able to continue living at home.

Parkinson's Care

What is Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s occurs when there is a gradual degeneration of dopamine producing brain cells. These cells play a crucial role in transmitting messages to the regions of the brain that govern movement and coordination.

In the UK, 145,000 people are living with Parkinson’s and it affects adults as young as 50 years old and those in later life.

One in 20 people will experience their first symptoms when they are 40 years old.

Parkinson's shaking

What are the symptoms?

There are three main symptoms of Parkinson’s that impact a person’s life:

  • A tremor or shaking that can be uncontrollable as the condition worsens.
  • Slowness of movement
  • Rigidity or muscle stiffness, all of which present problems for daily living if not supported in the right way.

As the disease progresses as well as the physical symptoms, there is a mental deterioration making the management of a loved one even more challenging.

Other symptoms of Parkinson’s include:

  • Memory problems
  • Speech difficulties
  • Poor balance and coordination
  • Anxiety and depression.
  • Problems with sleeping

Sadly, there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s, though there are treatments available that can reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. Early diagnosis can enable you to receive the right treatment and enable you to live as normal a life as possible.

What does our Parkinson’s care include?
