Dance/Movement Therapy motivates people with Parkinson’s to keep moving and helps to decrease Parkinson’s symptoms, allowing for more controlled and organized movement. Focus is on participants’ movement rather than traditional dance, though dance styles can be suggested. Benefits include increased flexibility, energy and range of motion.

This group is designed to help members change patterns of thinking in order to feel better.

This Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) group will offer tools to effectively deal with the challenges of aging. CBT cannot remove your problems, but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. Group members will have the opportunity to learn that there are others who are dealing with similar issues and who share similar thoughts, feelings and concerns.
