New group to share the load at Hawks Nest

Narelle Hawkes and Cheryl Milburn hope the group has a positive impact.A RELAXED environment to share experiences of Parkinsons Disease will be available at Tea Gardens with the establishment of the new Myall Movers Parkinson support group.

The group will be holding a bi-monthly meeting at the Silver Dolphin Room at Tea Gardens Hotel provided by Rob Anderson beginning April 2.

Cheryl Milburn of the group said carers, as well as those who suffer from the disease were welcome to come along to mix with other people and learn about how to find additional support services available in the area.

“You don’t need to do it on your own,” she said.

She emphasised that the meetings would be very low key with “no minutes, no fundraisers and no outside commitments”.

To help kickstart Myall Movers, support group coordinator of Parkinson’s NSW Trish Morgan, and Sue Tait from the Parkinsons Information Line recently met with the group.

Group member Narelle Hawkes said while the group would be an ideal place to be able to talk with empathetic people, official information should still be obtained through the Parkinsons information line on 1800 644 189.

Anyone interested in taking part in the group can call Mrs Milburn on 4997 2442 or Mrs Hawkes on 4997 0609.
