Individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or other movement disorders are encouraged to attend free “Delay the Disease” exercise classes at Mennonite Memorial Home, 410 W. Elm St., Bluffton. Classes are held from 1-2 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays in the chapel and can accommodate those in wheelchairs. Developed by Ohio Health, the program can help participants move about with ease and confidence in a crowd, get out of bed or rise from a chair independently, improve handwriting, dress independently and regain a sense of moving with normality. A physician referral is required and, if falling has been an issue, a participant must be accompanied by someone during the classes. To register, call 419-358-1015, ext. 221.

A support group for grandparents raising their grandkids and other children affected by addiction is forming in McComb. Grand Love, a program sponsored by the Family Resource Center of Northwest Ohio, premiered in Findlay last May. McComb organizer Deb Ewing said formation of the rural version has been in the works for the past year, with its first meeting set for Jan. 18. Meetings are open to people living in McComb and the surrounding area and will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. every Thursday in the McComb school library (enter through north front door #2). Meetings will be facilitated by Family Resource Center professionals, with an emphasis on peer support. Registration is not required, although those bringing kids are encouraged to call ahead so arrangements to provide child care can be made. For more information about McComb’s group, call Ewing at 419-306-9489 or email ewingd@mccombschool.org.
