‘A Path Through Parkinson’s’ is a self-management programme developed by Parkinson’s UK and people living with the condition. It aims to give you information, an opportunity to think, and help to decide what your priorities are.
We run self-management groups for people fairly recently diagnosed, those who have been living with Parkinson’s for longer, and for mixed groups. All groups are also for carers and partners. Come along and you’ll have the opportunity to learn from others with a similar experience of Parkinson’s. The groups will discuss:
- What self-management is;
- Looking ahead and plans for the future;
- Relationships, feelings and emotions;
- What’s important;
- Top tips;
- Taking care of yourself; and
- Support from Parkinson’s UK.
Self-management groups are run by trained volunteers, who have first-hand experience of Parkinson’s. Groups run for two, three or six weeks.
