Run by volunteers, the Amersham and High Wycombe Branch brings together people with Parkinson’s, their carers and families. We aim to help improve the well-being of everyone in our area affected by the condition.
You are not alone
In our meetings and activities, we support people and provide opportunities for them to meet others and feel more at ease with the condition. People share their experiences of Parkinson’s and form new friendships and acquaintances. Our range of activities for people with Parkinson’s caters for different abilities and interests and helps maintain or improve physical and mental fitness.
Support for carers
We also support spouses, partners and other family carers.
Our fundraising enables our branch to fulfil its aims and activities as well as contribute to Parkinson’s UK research into finding a cure for the condition.
Getting the message out
Through our publicity, web site and other communications we aim to let everyone affected by Parkinson’s in our area know about our branch and its activities. We also seek to raise awareness and improve perceptions of Parkinson’s amongst the general public in our area.
Support for everyone with Parkinsonism
Parkinsonism describes a range of conditions whose main symptoms include tremors, stiff muscles and slow movement.
Parkinson’s, also called idiopathic Parkinson’s, is the most common form of parkinsonism. Idiopathic means that the cause is unknown. Most people with parkinsonism have Parkinson’s but other types include multiple systems atrophy (MSA) and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP).
We offer support to everyone with parkinsonism, but if you’ve been diagnosed with MSA you can also contact the Multiple Systems Atrophy Trust. If you have been diagnosed with PSP you can also contact the PSP Association.
A committee of volunteers runs the branch. Meet them on our committee page.
