Are You Caring for Someone With Parkinson’s Disease?

If you are caring for someone with Parkinson’s disease, there are resources out there for you and the person with Parkinson’s.

The Cole Center for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders offers an Education Series that meets the first Wednesday of each month from 2-3 p.m. at the Messiah Lutheran Church, 6900 Kingston Pike.

The Cole Center Caregiver Community meets every second Friday of each month from 10-11 a.m. at the Faith Lutheran Church, 225 Jamestowne Blvd., in Farragut.

Also, there are Therapeutic Singing sessions that meet every Friday, June through September, 10-11 a.m. also at the Faith Lutheran Church, 225 Jamestowne Blvd, in Farragut.  The Therapeutic Singing Program is for both individuals with Parkinson’s and their care partners.  Music therapy allows members to engage in group singing, breathing and vocal exercises, as well as movement to music, all while building a strong sense of community and support.  All are welcome.  No singing or musical experience is necessary.
