TAF: NO May Meeting - There is no one-size-fits-all treatment approach when it comes to PD. Shop around until you find what works best for you. Find your perfect support group, therapist and exercise class.
Parkinson's disease can give you a new perspective on life. Share it.

Join us on June 26 to come together, talk and share with people who understand the challenges of managing PD as a patient, a family member or a caregiver. Sharing something you know or a coping strategy you use may make a difference in someone else's life.

And be sure to mark your calendar now for our July gathering. July is one of the most popular gatherings of the year, the Annual Summer Potluck Dinner on July 24. Riverside will provide chicken, drinks and paper products. All you have to do is show up with your favorite dish.

MS Support

The MS Support Group: helpful, hopeful and monthly! That's A Fact: While yoga won't cure MS, it can be helpful in reducing symptoms.

Fortunately, Pivot Physical Therapy was able to reschedule for this month, Tuesday, June 25. One of their physical therapists will join us to talk about body mechanics and show us some exercises for core strength and flexibility. Exercise plays an even greater role when you have MS, becoming a crucial tool to manage your disease. It can help to improve walking and balance and to reduce fatigue and depression.
