Zoom Links and Living Well Education

Parkinson's SA&NT are offering a range of Living Well seminars, as well as some of our specialised support groups virtually via Zoom. Zoom is a web video conferencing used by many individuals, organisations and support and recreational groups worldwide. Zoom allows us to connect easily and to speak with each other even though we can’t be together. While there is a paid version that we use at Parkinson’s SA, the Zoom app is available to use for free with some restrictions. We have been embracing Zoom post Covid-19 lockdowns because it allows us to connect with the community whilst maintaining social distance, where we can all see each other and join in the discussion together, whether we are on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or phone. This is exciting, and mastering IT such as this can only give our community further confidence in remaining independent moving forward. This also means our reach into the community is greater than ever before, because our regional and remote commnity can Zoom with us and participate actively from their own regions. 

Below is the list of upcoming sessions that you may wish to join. You will find the link, and then get asked to enter the Meeting ID and Passcode included in each session below. We recommend you bookmark this page and come back to it for the link to each session you wish to attend. If you're unavailable to participate in a seminar or want to review what was discussed recorded seminars are available to view at www.vimeo.com/parkinsonssa
