Parkinson's sufferers isolated

13th April 2007

The Parkinson’s Disease Society says that public awareness of the effects of the illness needs to improve.

The charity says that greater understanding of the disease by the general public could go a long way towards helping sufferers go about their daily lives.  According to the charity, problems often arise due to a "lack of understanding about the need to be patient sometimes". The charity is also calling for better communication between victims of the disease and healthcare professionals.

Parkinson's disease is caused by the impairment or death of certain neurons in the brain; symptoms include uncontrollable shaking, rigidity and difficulty balancing.
