Parkinson’s Group meets second Thursday

Parkinson’s Disease Support Group –

The Parkinson’s group invites everyone suffering from or providing care to anyone with Parkinson’s to attend regular meetings.

Parkinson’s is an incurable and debilitating neurological ailment affecting more than 10 million individuals worldwide.

Although each patient exhibits a unique set of symptoms, the most common are those that result in movement disorders and include tremors or shakes in the upper extremities, trouble with walking gait with an increase in the danger of falling, trouble maintaining speech volume, forgetting to swallow resulting in drooling from the mouth, loss of the sense of smell, and loss of appetite.

The group meets the second Thursday of each month from 2:30-4:00P.M. at Grace Lutheran Church to share experiences in an informal and friendly setting.

Anyone seeking more information is encouraged to call Rosie Holtrop at
