Case study

Name Mr C
Age 85
Location Coulsdon

Mr C was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 7 years ago and, up until recently, had been capable of managing his symptoms by himself.

Mr C and his wife called Fairhand for help as they felt the disease had caught up with them and their day-to-day life had become very difficult.

Mr C was very depressed and found simple movements very uncomfortable. Together, they felt quite isolated.

It had been a while since the diagnosis so we ran through with them Parkinson’s disease basic management.

We then taught the couple some specialised techniques and exercises.

We are still involved with this couple but their lives have turned around, they feel less isolated and now frequently go out together.
