A NEW support group has arrived in the South Burnett.

People with Parkinson's disease, their families and carers are invited to attend the newly formed group that will kick off tomorrow, on Monday, January 14, in Kingaroy.

Parkinson's disease is a progressively degenerative neurological disorder that affects the control of body movements.

Around 35 people are expected at the free monthly meeting, which is open to the public, to set out this year's agenda, discuss guest speakers and enjoy morning tea.

South Burnett Parkinson's Support Group joint co-ordinator Maree Millard said the Orana Lutheran Complex was the perfect venue for the group meetings and she encouraged people to go along.

"We want to give people the emotional support they need and share ideas," she said.

"We want to see it go on, grow and become a support mechanism for the community.

"We also like to be able to educate the community about Parkinson's disease and make them aware anyone can be struck down with it.

"There are probably people and residents at Orana with the disease and we can reach out to them as well."

The meeting will be held on the second Monday of each month from 10am-2pm at MacDiarmid St, Kingaroy.
