Meds, mobility and magic!

by Patty Jenkins

Come to the Ventura Parkinson’s Disease Support Group on Wednesday, October 10th, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at The Lexington Assisted Living, 5440 Ralston St, Ventura to find out about the latest and greatest medications and devices for treating Parkinson’s and also the latest and greatest mobility aids to help you navigate your world! And if that isn’t enough to peak your interest, how about a little bit of a magic show also? This special meeting will be both informative and entertaining!

The Ventura Parkinson’s Disease Support Group is pleased to welcome several Pharmaceutical Representatives who will give us a brief introduction and handout materials about the Parkinson’s medication and other medical devices they represent.

We are also very pleased to have Paul Dwork, of Merlin Medical Supply in Camarillo, as our special guest. Paul is not only a pharmacist, but also an inventor and magician. Paul will be speaking to us about specialty products for Parkinson’s, as well as entertaining us with some of his magical skills!

Paul is an inventor of many products that help improve quality of life, which includes the GeeWhiz Condom Catheter for male incontinence.

Merlin Medical Supply is a great source for durable medical goods, specialty equipment for the physically challenged, which would include Parkinson’s, diabetic, incontinence and wound management supplies and other medical aids.

The Ventura Parkinson’s Disease Support Group welcomes the public, our members and their care-partners, and new friends who find themselves navigating the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological conditions. We are an independent and volunteer-organized group, not affiliated with or a part of any other organization or group. For more information, call Patty at 805-766-6070.

Thanks to the generosity of the Lexington Assisted Living, our meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month. There is a drop-off/loading and unloading driveway in the front of the Lexington Assisted entrance. Extra parking is graciously available across the street in the Baptist Church parking lot. Reservations are not required. Attendees are invited to check in at the front desk for directions to the 3rd floor and sign-in at the meeting so we can keep in touch with you.
