Exercise benefits all people with Parkinson’s, regardless of how long you have been living with the condition. The precise benefits of exercise are dependent on the type of exercise you undertake and how far your Parkinson’s has progressed.
Dance, exercise and boxing groups designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s are popular. We have a range of groups listed across metro and regional South Australia to connect with.
Our recreational groups aim to provide support around your individual interests and goals. Activities can include things like photography, jewellery making or working with fabric or ceramics.
You will spend time with like-minded people learning skills, doing activities you enjoy and exploring new experiences. Many people with Parkinson’s turn to recreational pursuits with great success and enjoy the therapeutic effects and satisfaction such activities can bring.
As individuals, we all respond to different stimuli, so you may like to try a variety of activities to see what works for you both therapeutically and artistically.
