Courses For Parkinson’s Carepartners

2017 Carepartner Seminar – OhioHealth Delay the Disease™

OhioHealth Delay the Disease™ introduces a new course designed to educate carepartners of people living with Parkinson’s disease. In this seminar, the carepartner will learn Parkinson’s-specific fitness routines to help the individual with Parkinson’s incorporate daily exercise into their lives at home and additional tips about taking care of themselves. This course will be presented by Jackie Russell, RN, BSN, CNOR, Co-Founder and Program Development Coordinator for OhioHealth Delay the Disease™.

Join us for a three hour instructional class that:

  • Reinforces the importance of caring for the carepartner, handling stress, finding time for yourself
  • Offers basic information about Parkinson’s disease and how exercise can help symptoms improve
  • Interactive demonstration of symptom-specific activities and functional tasks such as rising from a chair, getting out of the car, getting out of bed, getting off the floor, and more. ($20/person)
