Parkinson’s UK Self-Management Programme

Self managementA Path through Parkinson’s is a self-management programme designed to help you think about and plan how you want to navigate your life with Parkinson’s.

It brings 8-12 people with Parkinson’s, partners and carers together for three sessions of discussion, activity and self-reflection.

Four groups will be starting soon in our area – including two online ones (see below).  It is free to attend and groups are led by trained volunteer facilitators with first-hand experience of Parkinson’s.

Previous participants said ….

Julie attend a self-management programme in Derby “The self-management programme is unique; I’ve not come across anything like it before. It brings together different types of people who are in different types of situations, but with an understanding of each other. It helped me get over some of the little demons inside my head – it’s a reality check. The group is beneficial to people of any age, at any stage and at any time. I would recommend it to everybody – it was the best three Mondays I’ve had and it will stay with me forever.”

Carol attended a partners and carers group in Leeds in 2015. She then went on to train to be a Self-Management Facilitator. “As Chair of the Leeds Branch I can really see how the programme differs from the really valuable social support we provide – it’s a chance to talk through some of the bigger questions about life with the condition.”
