A Windsor care home is hosting a Parkinson’s support afternoon.

Care UK's Mountbatten Grange home on Helston Lane will open to the public between 2pm and 4pm on Thursday, November 14, offering visitors the chance to find out more about Parkinson's Disease and the support on offer.

The team at the home is joining forces with Care UK's Suzanne Mumford to offer guidance and practical tips for improving the everyday lives of those affected by Parkinson’s, as well as useful information about local support groups and specialist services in Windsor and the surrounding areas.

There will be a question and answer session to give everyone the opportunity to raise individual concerns and share experiences, while attendees will also be able to meet the team at Mountbatten Grange and take a closer look at the care home.

Debbie Winwood, home manager at Mountbatten Grange, said: “According to Parkinson’s UK, two people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease every hour. Most people diagnosed are over the age of 50, and one in every 500 will develop the condition in later life.

“Across Care UK, we care for a number of residents living with Parkinson’s, and we have seen first-hand how the experiences of individuals and their families can be transformed by having access to the right information and support.

“We are looking forward to welcoming the community to Mountbatten Grange to benefit from the specialist knowledge and expert advice on offer.”
