What have people found most helpful?


I am new here, and would like to change my profile name but it won't seem to let me.

Anyways, my Dad has had Parkinsons for the last 6 years and has been managing very well, but this last year things seemed to have become a lot more difficult. 

I was just wondering if anyone could let me know what changes, purchases or tips they found most useful...

Are there any really useful products that make life easier or things worth knowing about. 

I'm looking into Attendance Allowance, but would like to know how else I can help my dad.  Are there any products that really help in the kitchen?  or things that help with the morning routine of getting moving, which seems particularly arduous.

Just feeling a little overwhelmed and don't want to overwhelm my dad with lots of suggestions or ideas that aren't that great, so would just like to hear from any good experiences with anything!!

Many thanks in advance!


Hello Booho,

We have sent you a message regarding your username :)

There are a number of publications on Parkinson's and every day life that should have some useful information for your Dad. You can search for topics on this page, and this booklet on tips and hints might be useful to you both.

All the best to you and your Dad,
