We offer information and support for people affected by Parkinson’s at our friendly group meeting. We often have speakers and there is always time for a chat over tea and a piece of cake, for which there is a small charge (£2.50 per person, including coffee, tea and cake). You are also very welcome to join us on one of our outings. Please note that we don’t meet in August, but may have an outing planned so do check with the group.
Please contact Val for more details.
The Filo Project is an award winning not-for-profit social enterprise offering high quality small group day care for older people who are socially isolated and are experiencing symptoms associated with early to moderate dementia.
Transport is included in the service meaning we can support even the most geographically isolated. The intimate environment is key, no client is overwhelmed by a large group. We liken the day with the Filo Project to spending a ‘day with friends’.
