What is Parkinson’s?

Parkinson’s Is a progressive neurological condition. It develops when cells in the brain stop working properly and are lost over time. The brain cells produce a chemical called dopermine. Symptoms start to appear when the brain can’t make enough dopermine to controlmovement properly. As more dopermine producing cells are lost, problems with movemetn get worse. People can alsop start to experience other symptoms too inlcuding pain, bladder and bowel problems and mental health issues.

Parkinson’s is unique to every person with the condition and symptoms often fluctuate and change over time. So each care routine needs to be specifically mapped for each potential client and monitored throughout the care package.
