JCC Greater Boston, in partnership with the Movement Disorder Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, is committed to serving all adults affected by Parkinson's Disease and their families. We offer a variety of exercise classes, support group with a Licensed Social Worker and educational events to support people with Parkinson's in slowing disease progression and minimizing symptoms, while providing a nurturing environment for families to share information and provide emotional support.
In collaboration with the medical community, local organizations and experienced instructor staff, we strive to help our Parkinson's Community live their best, fullest life in the spirit of overall wellness and health.
This program is open to anyone affected by Parkinson’s. You do not have to be Jewish to participate.
