Despairing over an old friend

an old friend of mine is 75, he’s had to go in a home after suffering with parkinsons for 19 years, he can barely speak and he can no longer walk, i only heard the news recently and im struggling to deal with it.

Hi @zac,

A warm welcome to the forum.

I’m really sorry to hear the news about your friend, I can understand why you have taken this badly. We have a really supportive community on the forum and I’m sure our members will rally to you soon with some words of comfort and encouragement. You might find counselling really helpful for emotional support or face to face support groups with people who are going through similar situations as you. We have information on our website here -

We also have a team of fantastic advisers who would be happy to offer you support right now so do give us a call on 0808 800 0303.

Do take care and I hope you’ve found the info above helpful.
