Every conversation counts for our community.

Tuesday 11 April is World Parkinson’s Day – part of World Parkinson’s Awareness Month. When the world comes together to shine a light on Parkinson’s, a progressive, degenerative condition of the central nervous system.
World Parkinson’s Day provides Australians with opportunities to learn more about the issues facing people living with Parkinson’s in our communities every day – and how lives can be improved, particularly through exercise, participation in Support Groups, and community activities that provide social opportunities to reduce isolation.
We are stronger together, so during this month have as many conversations as you can about Parkinson’s … what it is and what it does to individuals … caregivers…and families.
