New sessions offering information and support for people with neurological conditions will run throughout June and July at Weston Hospicecare.
The sessions are aimed at people with conditions like motor neurone disease, multiple system atrophy and Huntingdon's disease, as well as their carers.
Sessions will be hosted at the hospice's Wellbeing Centre in Thornbury Road, Uphill, and will take place from 1.45-4pm on Monday afternoons - today and on July 1 and 15.
They will feature a wealth of information and practical advice from expert speakers from organisations like the Huntingdon's Disease Association, Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Multiple System Atrophy Trust, as well as the hospice itself.
That will include not only hospice doctors, but also counsellors and family support services, as well as information on physiotherapy and complementary therapies.
