Workshops to help you cope better with life after lockdown

8 July 2020

You were practically housebound for three months because of the pandemic. Faced with all the constraints that this situation created, you were anxious for things to get back to normal.

But now that the “normal” life has begun, you are anxious to get out of the house. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal.

 

Give yourself time

The constraints of the pandemic have prompted you to change your behaviours and habits during containment. You have had to limit your outings, wash your hands all the time…

You also know that the pandemic is not yet completely under control, it may be more difficult for you to change all these behaviours. Give yourself time to dispel this fear.

 

 

You can defeat the fear of deconfinement

You must have experienced other challenges in your life before this pandemic. You were able to overcome them. Then you can overcome this one as well.

In collaboration with various professionals and organizations, Parkinson Québec has set up a platform offering many free online activities.

The end of lockdown does not mean that we are going to close this platform of activities, on the contrary, we know that it is essential for those who are still isolated, those who can’t get around, or those who don’t feel completely ready to “face” physical appointments.

Our desire is to accompany you, to help you stay healthy and keep your morale up in these difficult times.
