Our ability to write clearly and legibly is an important factor in our lives. It may be used for a personal message on a card, for a memo to remember, a phone message or even a shopping list. Our ‘trademark’ is our signature and this also enables us to control our everyday affairs.
Many people with Parkinson’s find that their writing has become smaller, slower and generally more difficult. This often results in them no longer using writing as a form of communication. We do not believe that this is an inevitable symptom of the condition but is one area which can also be worked on to try and improve.
