Parkinson Association Office In Medicine Hat To Close

The Parkinson Association of Alberta says the office in Medicine Hat will close on December 1, 2017

The struggling economy over the past couple of years has seemingly claimed another not-for-profit office in Medicine Hat.  In a release sent out today, Parkinson Association of Alberta stated successful fundraisers like the Flexxaire Parkinson Step'n'Stride were not enough to keep them from being in a deficit situation.  The group says they have made the difficult decision to close offices in Medicine Hat as well as Lethbridge and Red Deer effective December 1, 2017.  According to the release, there will be no loss of service as home offices will be utilized in the community.  The Association says this move will free up considerable funds that will be directed towards support and services along with deficit reduction in these regions.  ~~  Warren Affleck
