Last updated 3/15/2019 at 11:13am

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Parkinson Support group will hold their monthly meeting, Friday, March 22, from 10 a.m. to noon. The meeting will be held in the fellowship hall of Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1620 S. Stage Coach Lane, in Fallbrook. The meetings are held the fourth Friday of each month.

This month’s speakers, Jeani Groesbeck and Jon Izzo will speak on “Recognizing When You Need Help – What to look for in an agency.” Groesbeck and Izzo are co-owners of Care Choice Home Care; Izzo is also a physical therapist.

Parkinson’s disease progresses differently in every person. As the disease changes, so do the needs of the patient and their family caregivers. Daily care tasks can escalate requiring a day care center or a home health aide for a few hours at a time. Eventually the family may need to consider full-time home care or a skilled nursing facility.

The support group meeting will help families identify when is the right time to explore home care as a support option and a clear knowledge of what services are included, costs and how to evaluate agencies effectively.

Izzo will discuss assistive devices and how to safely prepare the home environment to meet the changing physical and emotional needs of loved ones.

A time of sharing, coffee and refreshments will follow the program. The meeting is held in support of persons with Parkinson’s disease, care partners and people interested in improving the world of those affected by Parkinson’s disease.

For more information, call Irene at (760) 731-0171 or Vicki at (760) 728-7117.
