DELAY the DISEASE – #1 PD Exercise Program
NEW SESSION STARTS June 13th, Mondays at 3:00PM (Must have assessment prior to signing up)
Aloha to Aging, Inc. is partnering with Empower Recreational Therapy to offer group exercise for People with Parkinson’s. Delay the DiseaseTM is an evidenced-based national fitness program designed to empower those living with Parkinson’s disease by optimizing their physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms.
Classes target Parkinson’s symptoms and emphasize large movements, loud voices, balance, strength development, flexibility, core and posture, endurance, mental acuity all designed to retrain the mind and body. Participants report improvement in quality of life, regained ability to successfully manage the disease, and maintenance of independence. This program targets daily functional challenges and symptom-specific fitness agendas. Exercise plans are adapted to all levels of the disease, valuable to newly diagnosed and progressed states alike. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for class fees.
Aging 101 Hands-On Sensory Simulation Class – Focuses on cognitive & physical age-related challenges
Families, caregivers and professionals can reach a deeper level of understanding by spending some time “walking in their care recipients or clients shoes.” Activities mimic what it is like to feel confused, frustrated, isolated and more. Participants will gain compassion and empathy.
These simulation exercises help participants understand age-related health challenges faced by the older people they serve. These include neuropathy, hearing loss, vision loss, language and cognitive impairment, mobility and balance. Join us as we share experiences with peers to help you process lessons learned in a meaningful, memorable way. What is it like to live every day as an older adult facing one or more common, age-related health challenges? During the engaging, active learning simulation sessions, participants break into small groups for simulation exercises designed to provide insight into this important question. After the “hands-on” experiences, they gather to discuss how such challenges may impact an elder’s autonomy and ability to live independently.
