    I an an 83 year old male and live in England and have recently been diagnosed with early PD.

    As a new member of a club that nobody wishes to join, I am open to all suggestions that will help me avoid the risk of falling.

    I attend a weekly exercise class run by Paul Goddard an excellent tutor, who has devised and adapted physical exercises specifically aimed at people like myself.

    I watched with interest the experiment that involved stepping around the pink squares and stepping on the green squares. Is there something you can suggest for me to try to replicate that at home or indeed anything else that may help?

    Kind regards,

    John Hodgson
