Meetings for people with Parkinson’s, their carers and those interested in learning about the illness are held the first Friday of each month from 2pm – 4pm.
The location is the Emmanuel Room, Methodist Central Hall, Westminster. Methodist Central Hall has a convenient access to the Emmanuel Room at the rear of the building in Matthew Parker Street. A warm welcome is extended to all and refreshments are provided. The meetings are organised jointly by representatives of Central London Community Health Core NHS Trust, Parkinson’s UK and Methodist Central Hall.
Parkinson’s is an incurable, debilitating illness which causes serious ongoing problems for sufferers. The symptoms include difficulties with balance, movement and with most bodily functions, which can lead to a lack of confidence, worry, stress and depression. The meetings offer guidance and information to assist suffers and carers in coping.
The programme for each meeting provides an opportunity to make new friends, share experiences and exchange ideas in addition to receiving information via talks, demonstrations and discussion.
The NHS Specialist Parkinson’s Nurse for Westminster and the local Advisor for Parkinson’s (UK) lead the meetings and provide an opportunity to ask questions jointly or privately.
