Ulster County Support Group – Kingston


Ready, Steady, Go!

 

Parkinson’s Disease Support Group in Kingston

Join others who are diagnosed with PD. Learn to cope with PD’s challenges in a fun, supportive, peer-led group that focuses on stress management through mindfulness, gentle movement, music, and humor.

 

This group will give participants an opportunity to:

  • Talk about the impact of PD on everyday life in a safe, respectful environment.
  • Learn from others and share useful written, community and on-line resources
  • Use methods such as deep breathing, mindfulness meditation, music and laughter to achieve improved mental health
  • Try gentle chair exercises to help with dexterity, flexibility, facial expression and vocal strength.

 

Important: Participation in occasional low stress exercise is optional. Those who choose to participate should only do so at a pace which is manageable and approved by the treating physician.
