At Parkinson’s SA we recognise that the majority of face to face information and education happens in the metro area. In reality, the majority of people living with Parkinson’s can’t attend these education seminars due to distance and/or disability. We’ve been servicing people in the metro area very well for quite some time, but it is vital that we to do more to reach people living with Parkinson’s in the outer, regional, rural and remote areas of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
This year we are beginning to address this issue by releasing 14 seminars on DVD, USB or available to watch online via Vimeo.
We recommend that you watch these videos with your local Parkinson’s support group, with a family/paid carer or on your own. If you have any questions that you would like to ask the health professional or presenter send your query to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will seek out an answer and get back to you. Please refrain from asking personal questions that would require someone to have a consultation with you in order to be able to answer.
We hope to continue to increase education and support in our regional areas so that all people living with Parkinson’s can maximise choice, independence and wellbeing.
