Young Onset Recently Diagnosed Seminar
Maurice Blackburn Melbourne, Level 21, 380 La Trobe St Melbourne (map)
Fri 13th Sep 2019, 1:00pm to 5:00pm (4 hours)
Have you been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and are still of working age?
Young Onset Parkinson’s is the term used to describe the condition being diagnosed under the aged of 65 years.
Living with Parkinson’s while still employed and raising a family can bring its own set of challenges. That is why Parkinson’s Victoria runs a Recently Diagnosed Seminar specifically for people of working age.
RDS sessions provide an intimate environment in which individuals and their families can understand diagnosis and connect with others facing a similar situation.
You will be provided with the knowledge and tools to build a foundation for improved confidence, self-management and care, including symptom management strategies, plus information on the many support services available.
The Young Onset RDS also includes information specific to managing Parkinson’s while remaining at work. A representative from Maurice Blackburn will present relevant information relating to employment, discrimination and superannuation.
By attending this unique event at Maurice Blackburn’s Melbourne office, you will learn more about living with Parkinson's from experts, have your questions answered and meet and hear from others facing comparable changes and challenges.
Family and friends are also welcome to attend. Attendance is complimentary for Parkinson's Victoria members (plus one accompanying guest) – or $20 per person for non-members.
