COVID-19 Servie UPDATE...

The Group normally meets monthly 2:00pm - 3:30pm at a location in Roseburn but while the regular on-site Branch activities are suspended due to the coronavirus situation, the Group is holding twice monthly online sessions.

If you would like to give the group a try, please contact Alison Williams at alison@edinburghparkinsons.org or Bill Wright at: bill@edinburghparkinsons.org Phone: 07719 603321 or 0131 557 5979.

Normal service details...

In this monthly group people with Parkinson’s talk, laugh, share experiences, and learn to be forthright about feelings and needs. We exchange information about what works for us as individuals: whatever has improved the quality of life for someone and so potentially for others.

The group is not facilitated but self-led. We learn how to deal emotionally with what the world throws at us now that we have PD; how to maintain our sense of humour and our fighting spirit. Spontaneous comments include “It’s so good to be able to talk about Parkinson’s without boring anyone!” and “The feeling of understanding and companionship was heart-warming”.

If you would like to give the group a try, please contact Alison Williams at alison@edinburghparkinsons.org or Bill Wright at: bill@edinburghparkinsons.org Phone: 07719 603 321 or 0131 557 5979.
