The Coalition on Family Caregiving invites the public to attend their second program in the Spring “Living Well” Seminar Series. The series of presentations is designed to help people with specific illnesses and their caregivers better understand the condition and manage their symptoms so they can lead as active and healthy lives as possible.
The second in the series is “Living Well with Parkinson’s” which will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm at The Presbyterian Church in Westfield, 140 Mountain Avenue, Westfield. Often, Parkinson’s patients have sleep problems that are caused by the disease itself or are brought on by medicines used to treat the patient. Dr. Marcie Rabin, Neurologist, Atlantic Neuroscience Institute, Overlook Medical Center, will discuss sleep problems associated with Parkinson’s and offer ways to improve the ability for a restful night sleep. Advance reservations are requested by confirming your attendance by calling Maryann Porosky, at 973-627-4087 or email@example.com .
There is no charge to attend the presentation and light refreshments will be served. This seminar offers caregivers and individuals with Parkinson’s common strategies for living well with Parkinson’s. You will also have an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session after each presentation.
The final program in the Living Well Series is entitled “Living Well with Cancer” scheduled for Tuesday, May 1 from 6:45 – 8:30 pm at the Faith Lutheran Church, 524 South Street, New Providence. Please RSVP to Janet Kuebler at 908-281-7961 if you are interested in attending.
