In this 3 part series, we look at what it means to be given a diagnosis of Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s disease is the only long term neurological condition that is increasing globally. The number of people living with the condition is set to double over the next few decades as we all live longer. Estimates suggest that 9 million people by 2030 will be diagnosed globally.

To many the image of someone with Parkinson’s often is still that of an elderly person who shakes, but as Jane Hill discovers, this picture is out of date. There are many symptoms including loss of smell, sleep disturbances, constipation and mood disorders.

In this series we explore whether exercise is the best medicine, and hears about the latest research into this hugely complicated condition, that (as an ageing population) more and more of us are going to develop.

Episode One

In this first programme, Jane explores the reality of what it’s like to live with Parkinson’s.

She has experienced the condition first hand, as her dad lived with Parkinson’s for more than 10 years and his brother had it too.

Jane and her cousin Steve, remember their fathers’ experiences from the 1980s. There was very little awareness and their fathers were typically British and stiff upper lip.

n contrast, Jane meets people with a different approach to living with the condition. Paul Mayhew Archer is a highly successful comedy writer who was diagnosed in his 50s. He’s been touring a one man show The Incurable Optimistwhich tries to find the lighter side of the condition.

Dutch blogger Mariette Robijns offers advice on accepting the diagnosis and how to stop Parkinson’s being the most dominant part of your life.

Episode Two

In this second programme, Jane looks at the evidence for exercise in the management of Parkinson’s. She goes to Dutch blogger Mariette Robijns’ Rock Steady Boxing class, hears about the benefits of ballet and how physiotherapy can make a difference at any age and stage of the condition.
