Good afternoon everyone
My name is Alan Vickery. I was diagnosed with Parkinsn’s in 2014. I used to belong to a couple of local groups around Plymouth. I did move away to Wales from 2018 to 2021. I am originally from Plymouth. I would like to get to know people around here again if possible.

Hi @AlanV55,

A very warm welcome to the community! If you’re looking to connect with others you’ve come to the right place. We have a very friendly and supportive bunch here, as I’m sure you will soon see, so please feel free to browse and post as you wish.

We have a support page that you can take a look at for some potential ideas for support in your area, as well as some more general suggestions.

You can also reach out to one of our Parkinson’s advisers from our helpline - they are very supportive and quiet knowledgeable in everything Parkinson’s. They may be able to point you in the direction of some new local groups. You can call them on 0808 800 0303.

I hope this helps and that you enjoy your time here!

Best wishes,
Forum Moderation Team
