Parkinson's Disease sufferer David Forsyth from Brandon, County Durham lies on his bed with a cold cloth on his forehead to try and reduce a fever during a respite stay in a care home.
These visits to a care home are becoming more frequent as the demands on him and his wife who provides full time care to him begins to take a toll.
Parkinson’s is a long-term neurological condition that affects the way the brain co-ordinates body movements including walking, talking and writing and affects both men and women.
