Reminder  – February Parkinson’ s  Support Group Meeting
when  – Saturday  February 23rd  from  10 am – noon
location – Sunrise Senior Living at Fair Oaks,  3750 Joesph Siewick Dr. In the 3rd floor Library (room to the left of  the elevator)
We want to thank Sonia Gow, Ruth Ann Hadley and Regina Zinzer for the excellent presentation on “hospitalization with PD”  at our January meeting. They emphasized the importance of pre planning and gave ideas for putting together a  ” hospital go bag”  with items for both the patient and care partner. They shared their knowledge and experiences with hospitals and rehabs, which led to good group discussions. A true support group at its best..People with Parkinson’s, their care partners or family are welcome to attend support group meetings.
We do not have a speaker for Feb. so will share among ourselves. One suggested topic / question is, How do you stay active and exercise during colder months,when we spend more time indoors?
