Speech Therapy Giving Hope

Established to help people living with Parkinson’s disease in Australia and specifically on the Sunshine Coast, the team behind the locally based Restoring Hope Parkinson’s Therapy (RHPT) is assisting locals to access the therapy they need.

Pay it Forward

Restoring Hope Parkinson’s Therapy (RHPT) is excited to launch the Pay It Forward model for the LOUD Crowd (R) group therapy program here, which will support people with Parkinson’s and their family and friends.

A ‘beary’ good idea

Bear-maker of 19 years Lorraine Dippelsmann, who made five bears for the auction, said she wanted to use her ability for good. “I just thought it was a good opportunity to support this new charity and to help the people who suffer with Parkinson’s, because we never know what is around the corner for each one of us,” she said.
