For those living with Parkinson’s disease, every activity of daily living is often difficult, frustrating, and time-consuming. Add in the fear and anxiety of getting sick with a global virus and it can take an emotional and physical toll on those who are already suffering.
The mission of Parkinson Place is to meet the physical, mental, emotional, and social needs of those living with Parkinson’s disease through education, empowerment, support, and community resources.
Parkinson Place is an 11,000 square foot destination site in Sarasota, Florida dedicated exclusively to offering the finest educational, empowerment, and evidence-based group participation programs that have proven effective in promoting quality of life for both members and their caregivers. Numerous studies find exercise, eating well, and socializing are some of the best things you can do to slow down disease progression.
Amid the coronavirus, Parkinson Place transitioned into the virtual world. Over the course of 6 months, Parkinson Place has shifted its programming online through Zoom and now hosts over 60 classes, support groups, and special educational events per month. We are working diligently on re-opening our building and putting protocols in place to ensure our member's safety.
Parkinson Place continues to reach people throughout the U.S. and beyond. Our members show us what CAN be done every day!
