Parkinson’s Support Group gets great advice

GYMPIE Parkinson's Support Group members have picked up some great tips from guest speakers in the past few months.

In November, Blue Care continence nurse advisor Sasha Shofay spoke with sensitivity and understanding of a problem that could be

embarrassing as well as unfortunate.

In October Goldfields Fullife Pharmacy pharmacist/naturopath Gabi Calder

explained the benefits of adding vitamins and minerals to their daily medication requirements.

Members agreed it was interesting to note that pharmacy and natural therapies go very well together, sometimes one enhancing the other.

The December meeting will be the group's Christmas lunch, which starts at the Victory Hotel Motel at noon on Monday.

The first meeting for 2015 will be February 9 at the Victory Hotel.
