Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Memorial Hospital offers Parkinson's support group

April 14, 2017



JASPER – Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. Symptoms include tremors or trembling in the hands, arms, legs, jaw or head; rigidity or stiffness of the limbs and trunk; slowness of movement; and postural instability or impaired balance. The disease is both chronic, meaning it persists over a long period of time, and progressive, meaning its symptoms grow worse over time. It is estimated that 50,000 Americans are diagnosed each year with this disease that has no cure.
For many, being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease can leave them feeling alone and frightened. The Parkinson’s Disease Support Group at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center allows these patients and their families to come together to share information and support.
The next support group meeting will be Wednesday, April 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hospital’s Medical Arts Building Conference Center, located at 721 W. 13th St. in Jasper.
For more information about the Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, please visit Memorial Hospital’s website at www.mhhcc.org and click on “Classes & Events,” or call Rachel Lampert, Practice Manager, at 812-639-1978 Pre-registration is not necessary and there is no cost.
