Parkinson’s can impact people in many different ways. Some may experience difficulties walking or speaking while others might encounter problems with sleeping and fatigue, to name just a few symptoms of the condition. This means the impact on quality of life can vary from person to person.
To shine a light on some of these challenges, filmmaker Bettina Rotzetter and neurologist Ines Debove of the Bern University Hospital (Inselspital) created an awareness video supported by Parkinson Schweiz (Parkinson Switzerland).
Titled ‘Happy Hour’, the 24-minute film explores the topic of quality of life through the eyes of those living with Parkinson’s, their relatives and subject matter experts to showcase how the condition can affect each person differently. As the video progresses, cast members share what the term ‘quality of life’ means to them and talk about the impact Parkinson’s has had on their lives and their loved ones.
