Frequently asked questions

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years. It affects one in every 500 people.

That’s about 120,000 people in the UK.

Most people who develop Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over, but younger people can get it too. One in 20 people with Parkinson’s is under the age of 40.

The three main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:

Involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body (tremors)
Slow movement
Stiff and inflexible muscles

A person with Parkinson’s disease can also experience a wide range of other physical and psychological symptoms, including:

Depression and anxiety
Balance problems – this may increase the chance of a fall
Loose sense of smell
Problems sleeping
Memory problems

Parkinson’s is caused by a loss of nerve cells in the brain. This often results in slower movement, meaning it takes longer to do things. It is not known exactly what causes Parkinson’s, but it is thought to be a blend of both genetic and environmental factors.

All our care and support staff complete the nationally recognised care certificate. Specific client needs-led training is taught by internal and external trainers and/or healthcare professionals.

We also have an internal ’Understanding Parkinson’s’ training programme.

Though Parkinson’s is a life-changing condition, with the right care and support, you can still lead a happy and fulfilling life in the way you want to.
