Staff at Bluebird Care Newmarket & Fenland are raising awareness about Parkinson’s disease, what to look out for and how to help people live well with Parkinson’s.
 
This year's Parkinson's Awareness Week (20-26 April) focuses on encouraging everyone to be kinder than ever to everyone. Showing a little patience to people with Parkinson’s can make all the difference.
 
Bluebird Care Newmarket & Fenland is sending out the strong message to support people with Parkinson’s and is urging people locally to support the campaign that will encourage the public to be nicer to everyone, and that even small acts of kindness and understanding can be extremely helpful to people with Parkinson’s. 
 
Commenting, Director of Bluebird Care Newmarket & Fenland, Carolyn Dailey said:
 
We are delighted to help raise awareness about Parkinson’s and support Parkinson’s Awareness Week. We will be sending out postcards throughout the week to all of our customers. These outline the key points of living with Parkinson’s. Our team will be wearing the ‘Something to Say’ awareness pin badges and we have our ‘Friendly Pledge’ poster clearly available which encourages us all to make a pledge to be more friendly, whether it is popping the kettle on or holding the door open for someone."
She added:
 
At Bluebird Care, we are we very aware that living with Parkinson’s can be extremely challenging and my team are working hard to do all we can to help support people with Parkinson’s.”
There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s and one person in every 500 has Parkinson’s in the UK.
