Parkinson’s UK is calling on care home residents and staff to take part in a vital survey on the symptoms, day-to-day care and treatments of people with Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s UK has launched the survey in conjunction with ENRICH (Enabling Research in Care Homes) and the Research Ready Care Home Network.
Dr Kieran Breen, director of Research and Innovation, Parkinson’s UK, said: “Our research aims to improve life for people living with Parkinson’s now, and ultimately find a cure. But we need the input of people who have direct and personal experience of Parkinson’s to make sure we’re addressing the right questions to help us achieve this.”
Parkinson’s UK will use the findings to guide future research and inform their wider work as a charity.
The survey can found at www.parkinsons.org.uk/researchquestions
Freepost paper copies can be obtained by contacting Parkinson’s UK research team on 020 7963 9398 or firstname.lastname@example.org
