April 12th 2019

 

Foxbridge House is opening its doors to the public for a free Parkinson’s awareness event.

Parkinsons or Stroke awareness 1

On Friday 3rd May, from 2pm - 4pm, the people of Orpington will have the opportunity to find out more about Parkinson’s and the support on offer for families affected by the condition.  

The team at Foxbridge House are joining forces with Steve Ford, CEO of Parkinson’s 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 Parkinson’s services in Orpingtonand 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: “According to Parkinson’s 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.  

“Across Care UK, we care for a number of residents living with Parkinson’s, 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. 

“We are looking forward to welcoming the community to Foxbridge House benefit from the specialist knowledge and expert advice on offer.”
