PICNIC DAY AT PENRITH

Fabulous !!! That's the word that describes our annual World Parkinson's Day picnic. The event was very well attended, and two VIPs from head office joined in the very relaxing and enjoyable day. The weather was perfect (especially after the recent floods), and I'm very grateful to everyone for coming along.
Viv.

LAST MEETING PENRITH RSL 17th JUNE

Todays monthly group meeting welcomed back an old friend, Jonathan Allott from Tab Timer. Jonathan demonstrated an array of helpful pill dispensers, talking watches/alarms, falls alarms, clocks, gps watches for men and women, and is NDIS, VA and Home Care Package compatible.
Thanks Jonathan for catching up with us again, and your chat afterwards.
Viv, Terry, Robyn and Glenn. 👏


Local Government Seniors Achievement Award

One of the winners, Vivienne Ross, said she was humbled to receive the award, and pleased that it allowed her to shine a light on the Nepean Blue Mountains Parkinson’s Support Group.

“It’s important because there’s not a lot of awareness about Parkinson’s, and there’s so much information to give to people with Parkinson’s that we’re trying to connect with. Getting the word out to people that don’t know we’re around is important, so they can have some support, some information, and some social activities to help them manage their Parkinson’s better.”
