Daughter of a Parkinson's sufferer


#1

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum today. My father was diagnosed in 2010 but had been suspected for a time before then. He suffers with depression and side effects from tablets plus the tremors in both arms and shuffling and stooped posture. He is 67. I care very much for my dad and want his life to be as comfortable as possible.

I've noticed a decline in the last few weeks in his physical ability (his depression is better managed now) and have started looking at what I can do., so thought I could join the forum, meet some lovely people and share some experiences.

just a little more info: dad and mum are together although mum can have a short tremper with him (and I feel for her too). He still drives but struggles to dress himself  I'm part and rarely socialises.

would love to hear from any fellow carers.

thanks
