The Parkinson’s Advanced Practice Nurse and the Brindabella Rehabilitation Service are collaborating to present monthly group education sessions for people with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease and their carers. This education will address Parkinson’s and the available resources within the ACT and surrounding areas.

Each session will cover:

  • a brief overview of what Parkinson’s Disease is and how it affects your brain
  • an explanation of ‘who does what’ in your healthcare team
  • education about how to manage your medicines
  • strategies to help manage your symptoms
  • information about exercises and tools that can help you with daily living
  • how to prevent falls.

Anyone living with Parkinson’s, or their carers, can register for this education session.

Sessions are held every three months from 1:30pm to 3pm. To confirm the next session date please call (02) 5124 0200 or email TCHparkinsonsnurse@act.gov.au.
