10-Week Parkinson’s Program
An exercise-based and education program held one day a week for 10 weeks.
At the start of this program, you will undergo a thorough assessment by a physiotherapist, occupational therapist and speech pathologist. This specially-skilled group of health professionals will teach you the fundamentals of exercise to support you to self-manage your condition.
From the third week of the program, you will participate in weekly group exercise and small group therapy sessions designed to meet your physical and emotional supportive needs.
Throughout the program, you may receive home practice activities to complete in between your weekly sessions.
Where appropriate, additional support and care may be incorporated into your program.
Group programs may not be suitable for all people. If this is the case, you may be eligible to participate in an individual multidisciplinary program, designed to suit your specific needs. Your treatment team or a Rehabilitation Physician will discuss if an individual program is best for you.
