Parkinson’s Wellness

While others look at “a diagnosis” when it involves Parkinson’s, we think it’s more important to see the person. Their story and their goals. By doing this first, we’re better able to help maintain their quality of life. We recognize we cannot change the course of the disease process. However, we believe we can promote the integrity of a person’s desires and goals. This can be accomplished with an individualized, intimate approach.

What makes our program different:

  • Education and support for family caregivers
  • An approach aimed to improve function and slow motor deterioration, by retraining sensory, motor, and cognitive functions through intensive exercise
  • Personalized  interventions built into treatment plan in tandem with LSVT BIG & LOUD, PWR! methods
  • Therapy that prioritizes skills for daily independence and safety
  • Baseline, follow-ups, and tune-ups offered regularly, to ensure maintenance of gains from therapy sessions
  • Use of pool (see Aquatic Therapy) to reduce the impact of gravity
  • Evaluation for mobility devices and adaptive equipment needs

Evaluation Process

After an initial evaluation by the PT / OT /SLP, we recommend a treatment plan.  The plan is unique to the client—their goals and needs, plus the therapist’s findings and knowledge. The frequency and duration of therapy sessions are based on the physician’s prescription and recommended treatment plan.

All About YOU

For those with a neuro-degenerative disease, we make therapy all about the person—who they are and what they hope to achieve. We don’t have one-size-fits-all plans. Here, each session is uniquely and dynamically customized.
