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.
