Hello- new member

Good morning everyone, just thought I’d introduce myself. My Father-in-law has Parkinson’s and it has reached the stage where he is totally bed bound. His wife used to be his main carer but sadly she passed away last weekend. So my husband and I are in the process of moving Fil over to our house where we can look after him. I know quite a bit about Parkinson’s because unfortunately my mum had it as well so I hope to contribute a lot to the forums.

Hello Dott, my condolences on your recent bereavement but a warm welcome to the forum. Without doubt with your experiences you will have much to offer and I hope you gain something from it too. I hope all goes well with your new living arrangements and send my best wishes to you all

Hi @Dott
