Organised by the national office, A path through Parkinson’s is a free self-management programme designed to help you navigate your life with Parkinson’s.
Each self-management group is led by trained volunteer facilitators with first-hand experience of Parkinson’s.
The aim is to share experiences and discuss the practical and emotional impact of Parkinson’s.
The programme offers a time-limited, structured and facilitated chance to talk through some of the bigger questions about life with the condition. In this way it differs from the really valuable support provided by our Branch.
Groups near our Branch will be held in May in Harrow and Henley-on-Thames (there will be others up and down the country).
What are the benefits?

- armed with information and knowledge
- more confident, positive, in control and able to move forward
- less alone as a result of meeting others
Participants also say they gain:
- greater self-awareness and insight
- a personal action plan for doing specific things such as exercise, hobbies and therapeutic activities
- improved speech as a result of talking in the group
