At this time, the board of directors at Parkinson Social Network (PSN), out of an abundance of caution, has decided to suspend all in person support events due to the COVID-19 /Coronavirus pandemic.
To support our community, PSN will be hosting a café the Third Wednesday of each month at 10:00am. You are welcome to come anytime and stay for as long as you can.
Wednesday, August 18th
Expand Your World with Encore Learning
Encore Learning’s Vice President Steve Shapiro will provide an overview of how Encore Learning engages older adults and then there will be time for questions.
Join us online to learn more about Encore Learning. Since 2002, Encore Learning has provided academic courses, special events and clubs for adults 50 and over. With two semesters each year, there are over 70 academic classes being offered this year. But did you know that they have a Cinema Club, a Mindfulness Club, and so much more? Join us to learn more about ways to engage with other older adults and keep your mind alert.
What is a café?
Our café is an informal social alternative to support groups for people with Parkinson’s, their carepartners and caregivers, as well as their families and friends. We have different topics every month to help get the conversation started.
Why come to a café?
Parkinson’s brings us together, but it is not all that we have in common. At our café, you’ll meet people with similar interests, hobbies, and work and travel experiences, so there is always lots to talk about and share. You’ll learn that there is more to life than Parkinson’s!
Parkinson Social Network is different from many other Parkinson’s organizations because our focus is less on the medical perspective and more about encouraging our friends touched by Parkinson’s to enjoy a feeling of well-being. We hope that our café will inspire people to make the most of life with Parkinson’s.
