Extra PD UK Local Groups at Telford
Published 2nd September 2016
There are 365 Parkinson's UK local groups throughout the UK. These are run by volunteers who usually have experience of Parkinson's and are supported by Parkinson's UK staff.
The groups welcome family members and carers, and some involve health and social care professionals. Meetings can be informal - a chance to discuss worries and experiences - or may include a presentation by an invited speaker, such as a healthcrae professional or complementary therapist.
Speech advance has been working with PD UK Local Branches to offer drop-in groups each month. The groups offer communication advice and support for those with Parkinson's and are open to carers and/or family members also. Exercises are provided suitable for speech difficulties linked with Parkinson's.
At present Speech Advance run groups twice a month at Shrewsbury Local Branch and have recently started groups twice a month at Telford Local Branch. Both groups have an extremely friendly, supportive atmosphere and are very welcoming.
If you would like more information, or wish to express an interest in these or other groups that Speech Advance offer, then please don't hesitate to get in contact.
