Parkinson’s care groups in Surrey
There are a number of Parkinson’s care and support groups in Surrey that can offer free and practical advice on the day-to-day management of Parkinson’s.
From support groups to festivals, there are many Woking community organisations to provide support, care and entertainment – the town even has its own radio station!
A good place to start is with Age Concern Woking. They have all manner of local meet up places and organisations.
For all the history buffs in Woking, there is the Heritage Open Days 2016, where you’ll get a free behind the scenes tour of Woking’s most iconic buildings. You might think of Woking as a largely modern town but it is actually home to several nationally significant heritage sites and ancient churches. For more information, take a look at the Celebrate Woking website.
Brockhill Extra Care is a unique housing scheme for the elderly and Monday to Friday offers numerous communal social activities for all locals to enjoy. Pop in for a good value meal or just to enjoy the beautiful gardens from 9:30 – 3pm.
