Parkinson’s Support Group Meeting
Date: Thursday 31/01/2019
Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: Boardroom at the Gillen Club (located on Milner Road)
There is a Parkinson’s Support Group meeting on Thursday 31 January from 6pm – 8pm in the Boardroom at the Gillen Club on Milner Road. The theme of this meeting is “Sharing” – please bring along an idea or strategy or item that has helped you (or someone you know) with some aspect of Parkinson’s Disease. At the bottom of this post are links to both a promotional poster and an agenda for the January meeting. If you would like hard copies, they are available at the Disability Advocacy Service (DAS) Office – or give me a call and we can organise what you require.
Please publicise our meetings – we would like to reach as many people with Parkinson’s Disease as possible. DAS can provide posters for you if you would like to distribute them.
If you or someone that you know would like to attend the meeting and is having difficulty with transport to and from, please let me know.
The February meeting will be on Thursday 28 February from 6pm – 8pm at the Gillen Club and we will have a Pharmacist as a Guest Speaker to address some concerns and questions about managing medications. If you have any particular questions and concerns that you would like the Pharmacist to consider please send them through to me at any time and I will pass them on prior to the meeting. You can also of course ask questions at the February meeting.
I am in the process of planning meetings and activities for the first six months of the year (it’s looking exciting – come along to the January meeting for more info!) and am hoping that one or more people within the group will take on planning the second half of the year (or even a single meeting) – anyone who would like to do so will of course have the support of the Disability Advocacy Service office.
If you are able to tune in to the local Alice Springs ABC radio next Tuesday 29 January, I will be interviewed by Emma Sleath about the Parkinson’s Support Group soon after 10:00am.
