Hi, parkpost, and welcome!
You will find lots of sympathetic souls on this forum, plus lots of people who have experienced what you and your mum are going through now. I hope you will find the support you need.
Has your mum been diagnosed? Is she on any meds?

Thanks guys,

She was diagnosed Sept last year,taking sinemet & neupro. We've had a pd nurse who has been brill & seen someone from parkinson society. Hopeing this Fri goes well with neuro, took 5 years of pushing before she finally got diagnosed.
