    Hi, just wanted to say a good tip we got from the Parkinson's mag was wrist sweat bands, so much easier than trying to find a hankie or towel.

    That is a good idea Patsy and they are so easy to change and wash,

    When my husband was 'at a drooling stage' with VaD (I don't know how else to describe it)
    the Docs prescribed a small patch (like a plaster) which really helped.

    We kept washcloths nearby which were more discrete than a small towel.

    that's what we thought and also if he or who ever is using then you too can wear without the person feeling out of place

    yes facecloths are good rather than the towel but sometimes it can be slow finding. so the bands are good, and washable.

    Dad doesn't so much drool on himself; usually it's directly onto the carpet. Any ideas?
