Working closely with NHS Highland and Parkinson’s UK we are delighted to provide exercise classes for people with Parkinson’s.

There is evidence that 2.5 hours of exercise can help slow the symptoms of Parkinson’s, such as sleep problems, fatigue issues and mood and can be as important as medication. Over 50 people per week are taking part in the classes and some of the feedback includes:

“I’m finding it very useful, it’s improved my balance and co-ordination and posture as well as my walking too”

“we’ve established a good rapport between the people the class and we’re supportive of each other”

“it’s good getting together with people with similar problems”

“Tuesday is our favourite day as we always feel so much better after the class”
