Stanley has spent the past two and a half years working at Abingdon Court Care Home, providing therapeutic activities for those living with various forms of dementia. This includes Parkinson’s disease. He has seen first hand the struggles that those living with Parkinson’s experience and the hardship that can be caused to their families. But he has also seen how comfortably and happily people with Parkinson’s can live if offered the right support, which is why it’s so important that we are raising money for Parkinson’s UK — a charity who not only provide these vital services, but are also leading crucial, groundbreaking research for better treatments and hopefully, a cure.
Sophie’s Grandad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the February 2021 and has since experienced the fantastic support Parkinson’s UK has to offer. This includes attending monthly meetings that provide knowledge and information about the condition, as well as fostering a strong sense of community. Sophie's grandparents have attended many social events organised by Parkinson’s UK, including a trip to the Isle of Wight. They thoroughly enjoy these trips and especially treasure the opportunity to build an invaluable support network with other families living with Parkinson’s. They also attend weekly exercise classes run by the charity, which prove crucial for maintaining strength, flexibility and balance. Sophie’s Grandad’s first hand association with Parkinson’s UK has truly illustrated what an important charity it is.
We hope that you are able to donate to this fantastic cause in any way that you can and support the incredible work that Parkinson’s UK continues to offer.
