Hi, can anyone offer me any advice, my aunt was diagnosed with parkinsons 7 years ago, she has been prescribed many medications but none seem to help her.(the side effects normally out-weigh the benefits!) She is at her wits end, its so frustrating seeing her quality of life deteriorating almost on a daily basis! What's more frustrating is that she only gets to see her consultant once a year if that! I don't understand how when her medication is changed she is not seen more regularly to asses whether or not it is working properly for her. Her last visit to the consultant was this week and unfortunately did not answer any of our questions
So really my question is, Is there anywhere private we could take her where she would almost be taken more seriously, and assessed more regularly? Offered alternative medications when her current ones don't work?
Any advice would be much appreciated x
