Support Programs- Postponed due to COVID-19

Parkinson’s WA Support Programs

Following advice from the Department of Health, Parkinson’s WA has decided to take precautionary health and safety measures and put our Support Programs on hold for the foreseeable future. Therefore, our Dance, Yoga, Tai Chi and Singing programs will be cancelled as from Monday 23 March. We hope to resume these programs as soon as possible but the safety of our Parkinson’s community must remain a priority. Thank-you for your understanding.

Parkinson’s WA runs four support programs. These carefully selected activity programs have been chosen and developed as they are known to deliver real benefits to people diagnosed with Parkinson’s through professional research and also from feedback from participants.  Each of the classes is taught by professionally trained teachers, who have adapted the programs to provide maximum benefits for people living with Parkinson’s. All classes include seated and standing exercises, and are adapted to accommodate all levels of ability and mobility. For many the social aspect of a Parkinson’s WA support program is just as important as the exercise itself – watch the video above to find out why.  Coming along to a Parkinson’s WA support program is a great way to get out and meet new people which in turn combats social isolation and the potential for depression.  We pride ourselves on creating a friendly, supportive environment that is beneficial for everyone. As always we welcome partners/carers to join the support programs so they can join in the fun too!
