This workshop is intended for people living with Parkinson's, including family & friends. Due to the nature of symptoms of Parkinson's, people with the disease are more at risk of falls. Parkinson’s disease affects the parts of the brain controlling balance and coordination. Additionally, some drugs used to treat Parkinson's can lower blood pressure, causing a feeling of faintness when getting up from a sitting or lying position (called Orthostatic Hypotension).

In this very important Parkinson's specific workshop you will learn: 1. The 4 Pillars of Falls Prevention 2. Tips and Tricks for Falls Prevention 3. About Medial and Medication Alert Services available through Lifeline, Fraser Health

Registration is by donation to IMPACT Parkinson’s payable at the workshop. Suggested minimum $20.00/person. For more information and to register contact .
