The Community Educator can make referrals to other health professionals as appropriate and provides reassurance and support for both the person with Parkinson's, their family and/or their caregiver. Weekly exercise classes are held specifically designed for people with Parkinson's. The Community Educator service also provides in-service training for Rest Home staff and other care facilities staff enabling best practice care for people with Parkinson's in their care.
