Description

TWELVE months ago, Mid North Coast Local Health District’s (MNCLHD) Parkinson’s Disease support team could never have imagined they would be delivering their group meetings and exercise programs online.

In 2021, however, these different ways of supporting and connecting with people living with Parkinson’s have proved to be very successful.

In the lead-up to World Parkinson’s Day on 11 April, the support meetings and singing, boxing and music therapy programs have continued across the Mid North Coast as an important way of improving health outcomes for clients.

MNCLHD Parkinson’s Clinical Nurse Consultant Vince Carroll said the day would help raise community awareness of the disease as the search for a cure continues.
