If you think you might need help with your speech, why not try the Speech and Language Therapy group?
Run by the Buckinghamshire Healthcare Speech and Language Therapy team, the Parkinson’s group meets on the last Wednesday of most months at Princes Risborough Community Centre. You can just drop in and try it – you don’t have to make an appointment.
What they say about it
“[It] has shown me how my voice can be strengthened. The varied programme of monthly sessions has been informative and enjoyable, addressing the different vocal needs of each of us” Geoff
“I have really enjoyed coming to the group. It has helped my self-confidence and made me feel better about my speech” Janet
“My experience of [it] has been very positive. I was diagnosed with having PD two years ago , my main problem being my voice and swallow. The meetings have been a great help to me, not only by the activities put on but also through meeting other PD sufferers and understanding the many ways the disease manifests itself” John
“The activities include music and rhythm, movement, singing and voice exercises. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and positive and has proved a great help in coming to terms with my diagnosis” John
