Hi @arnold77,

I’m sorry to hear that your husband has been having trouble resting. It’s not uncommon for people with Parkinson’s to experience restlessness. We have a lot of information on our website with some useful tips on how to help with this which you can find here, https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/sleep.

You might also find it helpful to contact our helpline and speak to one of our advisers about this on 0808 800 0303 for information and support.

I hope you find this useful.

Best wishes,
