Being diagnosed with Parkinson's and explaining what that means to family members can be extremely difficult at such an emotional time.
Telling young children about such a complex condition can be especially hard.
To try to make this easier, we've developed children's books aimed at 3 to 7 year olds. You can download them using the links below.
- My mum has Parkinson's (PDF, 3.4MB)
- My dad has Parkinson's (PDF, 2.9MB)
- My gran has Parkinson's (PDF, 4.3MB)
- My grandad has Parkinson's (PDF, 2.9MB)
We know lots of people would rather have something in their hands to read rather than look at a screen, so you can order printed copies of these books by post, phone or email.
