People in the Southern Trust area recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s are being offered local support and advice through a five week health and well-being programme, organised by Parkinson’s UK.

The free programme starts on Tuesday, May 12, in the Seagoe Parish Centre, Portadown and will give local people the chance to meet others affected by Parkinson’s as well as listen to speakers talking about exercise, relaxation and local information and support.

Parkinson’s is a degenerative neurological condition which can challenge how people feel in control of their bodies. There currently is no cure. The main symptoms of the condition are tremor, slowness of movement and rigidity – and these can deteriorate over time.

Sharon McGinn is the charity’s Information and Support Worker for the area and explains, “This programme is a great opportunity to learn a little more about the condition and find out what help is available in your area, as well as meeting other people.”
