Time Out for Carepartners, Parksville
Parkinson Society British Columbia recognizes the efforts made by carepartners and caregivers every day. On October 18, we invite all carepartners/caregivers to join us for an afternoon of education, socialization and relaxation.
Guest speakers will share experiences and strategies for coping with the complexities that arise as a result of Parkinson's disease.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Special notice: An adjacent room will be available for people with Parkinson's (PwP) to partake in activities (e.g., light exercise, dancing, singing), while their carepartner/caregiver participates in the sessions. We ask that PwP coming to the event respect this room divide, and not attend sessions unintended for them. This room will be managed by volunteers who will provide companionship and light exercise activities. The volunteers will not be medical professionals.
