Lisa Turley – Parkinson’s Local Advisor
My main role is to offer 1 to 1 support to all those affected by Parkinson’s. This includes both practical and emotional support. I can help with benefit and blue badge applications, accessing local services, accessing the local PDNS, carers support and much more. My work also concentrates on more specialised support with areas such as Continuing Healthcare and Social Services Assessments.
My support is available by telephone, email, face to face at the local group meetings or I can do home visits. Everyone can self -refer to me. I continue to be part of the Excellence Network, working closely with the Warwickshire Consultants, various Health Professionals and Parkinson’s Nurse Specialists, helping to improve Parkinson’s support/services in Coventry and Warwickshire.
My involvement includes attending their clinics and accessing more Newly Diagnosed Patients. I support the delivery of the Patient Education Programmes in Warwickshire. This is an opportunity for the newly diagnosed Parkinson’s patients to receive education on Parkinson’s, managing their symptoms, as well as enabling them to understand the support available locally to them through various health professionals and myself giving a talk about our roles.
My details are always on the newsletter or here on the website, so please feel free to contact me for information or support. As regards the future of Parkinson’s services, I feel there are exciting times ahead!!
