It is estimated that 13,500 new cases of Parkinson's Disease will be diagnosed in Australia in 2018. Parkinson's disease can leave sufferers dealing with tremors, slow movements, rigid muscles, and a tendency to fall. If your parent has been diagnosed with Parkinson's this year, you likely want to make sure your parent receives the care they need to help them get through each day. If your parent doesn't want to leave their current home, personal in-home health care is an option that might be attractive to your family.

Hello, my name is Liam and I live in Alice Springs, Australia. I work pretty hard every day out on my farm, so it isn't unusual for me to have aches and pains. I hate going to the doctor so I normally pop a couple of painkillers or open a cold beer to deal with the discomfort. However, my wife kept on nagging me to see a doctor, which I eventually did. The doctor at Fidelity Health Choice discovered that I had a rare infection which was causing the pain. After a course of drugs, I fully recovered. I now attend regular appointments. I hope you enjoy my health and wellbeing blog.
