This Wednesday 11th April is World Parkinson Awareness Day (#UniteForParkinsons) and here at More Than Mobility we have been long-time supporters of Parkinson’s UK so we wanted to let you know about suitable mobility products for Parkinson’s sufferers to help everyday tasks.

Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition.  Every hour 2 people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s.  One adult in every 350 has Parkinson’s. That’s about 145,000 people in the UK. Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too.

Although there’s currently no cure, there are a range of medicines and treatments available to manage the symptoms of the condition.

Mobility Products For Parkinson’s Awareness Week: 10th – 16th April

Thursday, April 13th, 2017 by morethan

Here at More Than Mobility we have been long-time supporters of Parkinson’s UK and this year we are supporting again Parkinson’s Awareness Week to help raise awareness about this disease and also promote some suitable mobility products for Parkinson’s sufferers to help everyday tasks.

Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time.  There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s but there are lots of different treatments, therapies and support available to help you manage the condition.

The last significant drug discovery for Parkinson’s was over 50 years old so this year Parkinson’s UK are asking the public to support our research which in turn will help develop better treatments faster.

Visit Parkinson’s UK for information and support and information on how to get involved in the campaign.  Also there are local events taking place across the UK including coffee mornings, sponsored walks, etc. so take a look at the 2017 event map.

This week is Parkinson’s Awareness Week and every year here at More Than Mobility we like to help by raising awareness about this devastating disease and also promote some suitable mobility products for Parkinson’s sufferers to help everyday tasks.

Symptoms and how quickly they progress are different for everyone.  There is unfortunately no cure at the moment; but drugs and treatments are available to manage many of the symptoms.  Parkinson’s UK are working hard to find a cure and help improve life for Parkinson’s sufferers and they have a network of information and 1000s of support workers helping families and carers.   Do take a look at their website at www.parkinsons.org.uk.
