Hi Monica .. I have never heard of that but will definitely give it a look .. much better than a broken hip. Good for you Dad using it. Thanks.

Hi there .. the weakness in my legs is always there .. I always keep moving them to try to strengthen them but to no avail. I have actually put my back against a wall and slid down to keep from falling but then couldn’t get up. Lucky for me I have a good hubby as well as a Lifeline Support.

Have a good day.

Hello
I have been diagnosed with PD about four years ago.  I have similar minor problems with my hands trembling  and find writing/printing difficult.  I also am losing interest in eating when being served with a meal of meat, potatoes and veggies and prefer a sandwich or soup more preferable.  I have lost some weight but had lots to lose so that isn't a problem.  No problem at all with breathing.  My main problem is legs and balance – I have fallen a few times and cannot stand except for a few minutes without having to sit down as my legs also feel like jelly.  I find that laying down helps me.

I have you get help for your Mother.
