Parkinson’s Group to Consider Local Safety Programs
Public safety initiatives that may be especially helpful to those with living with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease will be the focus of the next meeting of the area’s Parkinson’s Support Group, set for Tuesday, November 5, from noon to 1:45 p.m. on the first floor of the Anderson Inn at Quarry Hill in Camden.
Curt Andrick of the Camden Police Department will discuss the department’s take-back program for unwanted medications as well as the “Yellow Dot” initiative introduced to Knox County drivers last spring.
Support group meetings take place regularly on the first Tuesday of each month, from 12:00 to 1:45 p.m., at the Anderson Inn. Meetings are free and offer learning and fellowship to all those living with Parkinson’s disease as well as their loved ones and caregivers. Attendees are encouraged to bring bag lunches; Quarry Hill provides beverages and desserts.
For information about topics scheduled for group meetings through December 2013, or to learn more about the group in general, contact Carol Witham at 594-1637.
