support & information

yesterday, I attended a monthly Parkinson’s support group meeting in Vernon. I go to both the Kelowna and Vernon support groups, not only to let people with PD know I’m here [ and would love for them to be involved in my research 😉 ] … but also because it is an incredible opportunity to learn!

and compensate for fluctuations in movement abilities like physios and kinesiologists!

There is so much wisdom to be gained by being involved with the Parkinson’s community… and older adults in general. much love.
