Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition. People with Parkinson’s don’t have enough of a chemical called dopamine because some nerve cells in their brain have died. One person in every 500 has Parkinson’s. That’s about 127,000 people in the UK. Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too. The main symptoms of Parkinson’s are tremor, rigidity and slowness of movement. As well as affecting movement, people with Parkinson’s can find that other issues, such as tiredness, pain, depression and constipation, can have an impact on their day-to-day lives.
Parkinson’s can stop you from doing everyday activities such as keeping your daily personal hygiene up or not being able to get out of bed to wash your hair etc. This is where Nilaqua can help, nilaqua promotes independence as you can wash yourself without needing to pay for a carer. Our products require no additional water or rinsing, making the process much easier, especially if you are tired and in pain. We highly recommend Nilaqua Shampoo and Skin Cleanser for inbetween washes.
