Support Group for the Leeds/Bradford area

My friend, Pamela and I would like to invite, patients and carers to a coffee morning to discuss the possibility of starting a support group in the area. We have both been carers in the past and feel we have a lot to offer. We would welcome input from other support groups. Pamela and I have both attended other support groups and found them very informative also a chance to talk with others in the same position and always came away feeling uplifted, unfortunately we had to travel some distance hence our reason for starting a group locally. We have sent out letters but fear we may have missed someone therefore please let me know via the blog if you have not received a letter but would be interested in joining us

  • good on yer girls im sure you will get a lot of advice i never realised that there was so many people with psp and there is a real a need for support groups all over the world so good luck with it and god bless you psp sufferer peter jones queensland australia

  • Thank you Peter, my husband suffered with PSP , I hope you receive all the support you deserve

  • My dad had suffered with Psp but now he has died but there should be a new ideas of helping others this is a great idea. Because at the end we had to have private carer and my mum was my dads main carer aswell. I think this is a great idea at least people who have already seen loves one suffer and they can share ideas of what they think should have been done to help them.

    All the best
