A local care home is opening its doors to the public for a free Parkinsonís awareness event. On Friday 3rd May, from 2pm-4pm, the people of Orpington will have the opportunity to find out more about Parkinsonís and the support on offer for families affected by the condition.
The team at Care UKís Foxbridge House, on Sevenoaks Road, are joining forces with Steve Ford, CEO of Parkinsonís UK, to offer helpful guidance and practical tips for improving the everyday lives of those affected by the condition, alongside useful information about local support groups and specialist Parkinsonís services in Orpington and the surrounding areas.
There will be a question and answer session to give everyone the opportunity to raise individual concerns and share experiences, and attendees will also be able to meet the team at Foxbridge House and take a closer look at the care home.
Jane Kingsmill, home manager at Foxbridge House, said: ďAccording to Parkinsonís UK, two people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease every hour. Most people diagnosed are over the age of 50 and one in every 500 will develop the condition in later life.
ďAcross Care UK, we care for a number of residents living with Parkinsonís, and we have seen first-hand how the experiences of individuals and their families can be transformed by having access to the right information and support.
ďWe are looking forward to welcoming the community to Foxbridge House benefit from the specialist knowledge and expert advice on offer.Ē
