Parkinson’s awareness event at Norfolk House

May 26th 2017

Norfolk House is opening its doors to the public on Thursday 22nd June for a free Parkinson’s awareness event.

People of Weybridge will have the opportunity to find out more about Parkinson’s and the support on offer for families affected by the condition.  

From 2.30pm-4.30pm, the team at Norfolk House are joining forces with Parkinson’s specialist Sue Randall, local Parkinson’s Chair from Parkinson’s UK, to offer helpful guidance and practical tips for improving the everyday lives of those affected by Parkinson’s. They will also signpost attendees to further information from local support groups and specialist Parkinson’s services in Weybridge and the surrounding areas. 

There will be a question and answer session to give everyone the opportunity to raise any concerns and share experiences, and attendees will also be able to meet the team at Norfolk House and take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager at Norfolk House, Sabu Prothasis, said: “According to Parkinson’s UK, someone in the UK is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease every hour, and more than 127,000 people are currently living with the condition. 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 how the experiences of individuals and their families can be transformed simply by having access to the right information and support.

“We are looking forward to welcoming the community to Norfolk House and we are sure that those that are able to attend will benefit from the specialist knowledge and expert advice on offer.”
