Parkinson’s is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly. One in every 500 people suffer from Parkinson’s disease in the UK.
Nerve cells in the brain use the chemical dopamine to help control muscle movement throughout the body. In Parkinson’s disease, the nerve cells that make dopamine are destroyed, making it impossible for the brain to send proper signals to muscles in the rest of the body.

" Just a few lines to show my heartfelt appreciation for the attention and care given to me by the members of your staff whilst my son was away on holiday. It was a really great pleasure to be able to speak to them whilst covering a number of interesting subjects. It was great to have their company and they really lit up my day.
" There are often items in the media about the poor service provided by care agencies, and I was extremely worried when we had to find a care agency to support Adrian. The service we received from Axe Valley Home Care was first class in particular having regular carers at a regular time, who we were able to get to know, but more importantly they got to know Adrian's needs. They arrived on time, were smartly dressed and friendly and if there was a delay we usually received a telephone call letting us know what was happening.
" 'I would just like to say thank you so much for the care you provide for Mum. All of the carers are lovely and make Mum feel at ease. They bring a smile to Mum's face which is worth the world. A huge thank you to all of the carers. They do a wonderful job, no idea where we would be without them.
" Thank you for the care you give our mother. She particularly likes the very cheerful lady who even sent Mum a card when she was on holiday. How kind. Sadly, Mum has lost most of her sight but while she can manage in her own home it better for her and for this your help is invaluable.
