Parkinson's Disease Nurses


Parkinson's disease is a progressive and fluctuating neurological condition affecting movement such as walking, swallowing and writing.

 

The main symptoms of Parkinson's are tremors, rigidity and slowness of movement.

 

As well as affecting movement, people with Parkinson's can find that other issues, such as tiredness, pain, depression and constipation, can have an impact on their day-to-day lives.
