About this group
We are a support group for people with parkinsons. We provide physio classes to over 120 per week all year round in four venues in Galway City and County. These classes are vital for people with PD to enable them have a good quality of life. We and the Neurology Dept in UHG can see the difference these classes make both physically and socially. We are all volunteers and have had a loved one with PD.
Reasons to support this group
The difference the classes make on the members with PD is huge. Both mentally physically and socially. PD is a neurogical condition which can have a big effect on the patient and families but we as a support group help to make a difference to their lives.
Depression is a big part of PD so the group classes enable members to meet, chat and have a cuppa and share their stories and worries.
We the committee have walked in the shoes of lots of new people being told they have PD and their families and we can help them along their journey and confirm there is light at the end of the tunnel.
