‘‘Parkin­son’s dis­ease can be very iso­lat­ing and I would en­cour­age any­one whose life is af­fected by the con­di­tion to come along, ask ques­tions and learn more about the work of Parkin­son’s Vic­to­ria,’’ she said.

‘‘This group is about pro­vid­ing sup­port to each other and keep­ing up to date with the lat­est information and treat­ment of Parkin­son’s.’’

The meet­ing will start at noon, with Ca­te­rina to speak at 1pm. The cost is $5.

The group meets on the third Wed­nes­day of every month at Moama Bowl­ing Club.
