New UK based organisation Fighting-Fit has announced it is offering a weekend residential programme for younger and working-age people with Parkinson’s.

A pilot programme will be held from the 9th to the 11th of November 2018 at the Holiday Inn, Weston Turville, Bucks, HP22 5QT.

Fighting Fit offers an enjoyable and immersive experience providing support to those who are coming to terms with the condition who want to take control of their lives. Partners are very welcome to participate in the programme.

Through a carefully balanced blend of exercise, information sharing, skills development and discussion you will develop a personal plan to make changes to your everyday life in order to live well with the condition.

What makes Fighting Fit different is its focus on the use of technology, the development of skills for working life and the sharing of information about employment rights, finance and relationships. It also provides opportunities to try out different types of exercise particularly suited to people with Parkinson’s and meet like minded people in a relaxed setting.

The programme is facilitated by people living with Parkinson’s and delivered by a range of multi-disciplinary experts.

It runs from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon in a 4* hotel at Western Turville in the foothills of the beautiful Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire.
