Due to Covid-19, older people with Parkinson’s are at great risk of spending Christmas alone.
The most vulnerable people with Parkinson’s are over 70 years old, live by themselves and have spent most of the year lonely and isolated; away from family, friends and social communities. As a result, their health, wellbeing and quality of life has declined.
Parkinson’s Care and Support UK are the only UK charity that provides free Visiting Care for people with Parkinson’s throughout the UK. Our programme, which combines home care with companionship, ensures that the most vulnerable are not left alone.
This vital service has experienced huge surge in demand due to the coronavirus pandemic and we urgently need your support to ensure that we are there for those who need us most this Christmas.
