Chestnut Knoll Personal Care and Memory Care and FOX Rehabilita­tion provide informativ­e discussion­s each month via Zoom to support the well-being of those living with Parkinson’s disease, followed by an upbeat exercise class.

The next Parkinson’s Learn and Share is Thursday, April 15, beginning at 2 p.m. Attendees can also call in using the phone number provided at registrati­on.

Learn more about symptom-based treatments to help with rigidity, bradykines­ia and freezing, a sudden but temporary inability to move, from Dr. Andrew Harnish, FOX Optimal Living

rehab director. He has a doctorate in physical therapy; is a board certified geriatric clinical specialist; APTA credential­ed clinical instructor; and LSVT certified BIG therapist.

Following the Parkinson’s Learn and Share, join our group exercise class featuring Harnish and exercise physiologi­st Eric Sartor. They will use targeted movements to improve your posture, balance, range of motion, strength and endurance.
