We aim to provide accessible and authoritative information, education and support services, for all people living with, affected by, and who are treating Parkinsonism conditions.
Our division has support groups for people living with Parkinson's and their carers/family/whanau, covering the area from Waihi Beach to East Cape, in the Bay of Plenty. We offer a field officer service, along with speech and exercise classes, as well as carer support and general support meetings and a bi-monthly newsletter to members.
Our field officers provide support for people with Parkinson's, their families/whanau and carers, and will liaise with other community services to avoid duplication of services as necessary.
