It's about what you CAN do!

Support for those living with Parkinson's and their caregivers in Quincy, IL and surrounding communities

We are very fortunate to have group and therapy opportunities right here in Quincy for people with PD and their caregivers!

Caregivers Group

A support group for those that care for others dealing with Parkinson's.  Meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 12:30-1:30 pm at the Quincy Public Library (526 Jersey Street).  For more information, contact Kathy Saunders 217-222-6550 x 3418.

Exercise Class

Exercise is vital for those diagnosed with PD.  An exercise class meets every Wednesday from 10-11 am at the Blessing Wellness Center (4917 Oak Street).  This class is offered free of charge.

Rock Steady Boxing for Parkinson's

Studies have shown that exercise such as non-contact boxing can reduce and even delay the symptoms of PD.   Contact Quincy YMCA 217-222-9622 for member & non member fees.

LSVT Programs

LSVT LOUD® is an effective speech treatment for individuals with Parkinson disease (PD) and other neurological conditions.  Recently principles of LSVT LOUD® were applied to limb movement in people with Parkinson disease (LSVT BIG®) and have been documented to be effective in the short term.  Both of these programs are available here in Quincy.  Click here to find a clinician.
