Parkinson’s UK - Bexhill, Hastings and Rother Branch

AT our April meeting we had a joint presentation by Tracey Hickman from East Sussex Adult Social Care and Clare Hewitt who is the Parkinson’s UK information and support worker for our area.

Tracey talked about the services provided by Adult Social Care; in particular how an individual with social care needs could apply for an assessment (and a carer’s assessment if appropriate). Clare Hewitt then talked more specifically about her role and how she can support people living with Parkinson’s.

At our next meeting on May 17 our speaker will be Paul Lendon. He will be telling us about Sussex Day, which falls this year on June 16.

Our meetings take place at 2pm on the third Friday of each month at Grosvenor Park nursing home in Woodfield Road, Bexhill.
