In brief: Rule out...

Shoulder and arm pain in the elderly has many causes besides parkinson's.
The entity to rule in/out first is the very treatable, potentially very serious polymyalgia rheumatica. A physician can make the call easily. Palpate the temporal arteries during the exam. Your grandmother is fortunate to have a family member who cares as you do. Thanks for writing.
