Zoom Session Links

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. 

THURSDAY 19/11/2020     10:00 - 11:30AM
Living Well: Sensory Processing: Maintaining function through mastering your senses


Target Audience: People living with Parkinson’s
Speaker: Christian Burden - Occupational Therapist - Wellbeing Team, Parkinson’s SA&NT
Outline: Sensory processing is the way that a person perceives, processes and organises the information that they receive through their senses – hearing, sight, touch, smell, taste and movement. This sensory information can work both for you and against you, and can even be involved in exacerbating or relieving some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s such as fatigue and anxiety. This session aims to encourage you to consider how you interpret sensory information and get you thinking about using your sensory system as a symptom management tool.

Living Well: Managing fatigue and cognitive changes

 

Target Audience: People living with Parkinson’s
Speaker: Christian Burden - Occupational Therapist - Wellbeing Team, Parkinson’s SA&NT
Outline: Fatigue and ‘Brain fog’ are two symptoms of Parkinson’s which a majority of people will experience at some point along their journey. It can be frustrating for both the person with Parkinson’s and their primary support person, and can impact on many meaningful activities of daily living. In this session, we will discuss how fatigue impacts different functions of the brain and body, and how cognitive functions in particular can be affected by fatigue (and Parkinson’s in general). We will discuss some strategies to reduce ‘brain strain’ and how to get control of fatigue so that it easier to live well with Parkinson’s.
