I am the son of a parkinson sufferer,my father has had it for 8yrs.
In the past year and 1/2 he has suffered quite badly and has lost his mobility/ha can not stand and has difficulty picking things up and gripping things.
I now live with him in a care home/independant living - he has carers call on him every 2 hours,two carers shower him/shave/dress and give him breakfast.
They even come in to the flat during the night as he is on a high level of care.
I do all the washing/shopping/cleaning and cook dinner and tea and take him to all his appointments.
I do intend to do a lot of fundraising and help with our local pk groups.
I am hoping to help the research team as well.
I gave up work in march to become his carer an need a "mission in life"
I am a gay 45 year old man/no partner/non smoker/driver
I hope to use this forum a great deal as well.
We live in Roehampton,basically bordering Wandsworth and Richmond boroughs of London.
If any-one requires any help organising things or arranging anything just give me a firstname.lastname@example.org
Kingston/Hammersmith/Morden are near- will travel.
