Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a condition in which part of the brain becomes progressively more damaged over many years. There’s currently no cure for Parkinson’s and we don’t yet know why people get the condition. The links before will provide information about the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and point you to support services in your area.
