Parkinson’s is a disease of the nervous system that causes loss of muscle control. Medical research indicates that about 1 in 250 people over the age of 40, and about 1 in 100 people aged 65 or older, are affected by the disease.
As the disease progresses, activities of daily living can become more difficult. Symptoms include, involuntary tremors, slowed movement, muscle stiffness and balance problems. The symptoms can interfere significantly with simple tasks, such as bathing and dressing.
