Parkinson's disease is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years. Whilst there can be a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms, the three main symptoms of Parkinson's disease are: involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body (tremor), slow movement, and stiff and inflexible muscles.
Note: Although disablement must be caused by a physical or mental health condition, it is the needs and difficulties that result which will determine entitlement rather than the condition itself. As a result, whilst the case law below may be of assistance, it will be important to also look at the case law relating to the activities and issues that affect you too.
