Exercise Classes for People Living with Parkinson’s Disease

Positive Steps for Parkinson’s is visiting Annan with four taster exercise sessions planned during May and June.

The classes will be facilitated by two experienced, Chartered Physiotherapists who run the established sessions in Carmont House, Crichton, Dumfries.

A member of the Parkinson’s UK Group-Annan branch approached the A and E SHAP (Safe and Healthy Action Partnership) to see if they could bring the sessions closer to home to make the classes more accessible.

The venue is at Lodge Caledonian 238, Campbell House, Tweedie Terrace, Annan DG12 5ER. If approaching from the Standalane end, you keep walking/driving almost to the very end towards Annan Athletic; Campbell House is a sandstone building which is on the left and sits behind a hedge up a short drive. (Good parking and access)

Tea and coffee will be available and accompanying family, friends and carers are welcome to stay if they wish. There is no set cost to each session, but instead, it is suggested that a small weekly donation to Parkinson’s UK is made.

Loose, comfortable clothing is suggested with flat, supportive shoes. The physiotherapists will provide equipment for the class and can adapt the exercises to cater for the needs of individual participants.

Booking is recommended via 01461 207728.
