Both my husband I have been referred to a course for people with Parkinson's! We are just waiting on the date when it is to start and the times.
It is to have specialist talk to the group, exercises and I am not to sure what else at this stage until I get more information about it!
When I was contacted that they had received our referrals I was asked what I want to get out of it! I told her that I need help with my balance and exercises that I will be able to do and find out what I can and to meet other people who also have PD which I think will also help David too!
We are pretty much on our own since our daughter and son-in-law moved up the coast 4 and half hours drive from us! Our only contact we have is with doctors and phone calls to our daughter and it can be a few days before our son gets back to us when we try to ring him! But John and Bree did come and pick me up from the hospital when David had his last turn and the ED doctor was concerned about me getting a taxi at 11:30 at night and having missed three lots of my PD medication and I was unsteady on my feet! They put the washing on the rack before they left and John took me up to the hospital the next day and home again! Bree took me the following day and David was discharged in the afternoon so she took us home! I gave them petrol money for helping and they have said if we need to get to an appointment and have trouble getting community transport the would take us there! They have a shop that is open 7 days a week so I don't like to ask them!
But I am looking forward to going to this course! I will let you know more later! Has anyone else been to one before?
