Hi everyone, I'm a retired Engineer with some minor Disabilities looking after my Wife who has advanced Parkinson's, we volunteer with the local Parkinson's support group helping where we can, joining this forum will help us to understand the  difficulties that others in the wider Disability Community share.

    Hi @jontieb - Welcome from me too. Sorry to read about your's & your wife's problems, but how lovely that you both volunteer with your local Parkinson's Support group, & then to read that you wish to understand problems other disabled people face too, I can only thank you for joining Scope's online community.
    Seems like you're looking around this forum OK, but if you have any questions about this please say.
