Caregiver Workshop - Freezing of Gait
Have you ever seen your loved ones freezing and not know how to help them?
Freezing is commonly seen in People with Parkinson’s Disease (PwP). It is defined as a sudden, brief inability to start movement or to continue rhythmic, repeated movements. It can be very disabling as it could affect movements, walking, writing and even speech. PwP could be prone to falls if freezing occurs when they are walking.
The aim of this talk is to increase the awareness and address the knowledge gap in handling freezing for PwP. There would be practical sessions on advice and tips on how caregivers can manage freezing in PwP.
Caregiver experience sharing and discussion
This is the platform for caregivers to discuss the difficulties and problems they have encountered while caring for people with Parkinson disease (PwP). Caregivers can also share among themselves the useful and helpful tips for taking care of PwP.
