You should ensure the house is arranged in a manner that could reduce falling and or slipping. Contact the doctor because a disease that affects the brain can be risky. His meals should contain 1500 to 2000 calories daily. Visit http://www.drugs.com/cg/parkinson-s-disease.html.

He needs help and to be diagnosed. Huntington's disease has similar symptoms, which is hereditary. If he has Huntington's the chances of his children having it too is 50/50.

If it is Parkinson's, it's difficult to know your chances of also having it. My dad's dad had it, but so far, none of his kids or grandkids have it (including my dad, his two sisters, my brother, my sister, my 3 cousins, & me).

Did you rule out Huntington's disease? Some families hide the truth about it because they see it as a deep, dark secret. Check it out.

It can afflict someone when they are in their 20s, typically their 50s, but sometimes not until later. Some families have three generations with symptoms all at the same time. It happens.
