In-Person Parkinson's Connection Programs

We are pleased to offer many in-person programs to improve your fitness and function, as well as your overall quality of life, including:

JCC Parkinson’s Connection Program

Several programs of the JCC Parkinson’s Connection program are supported by a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Many of our Parkinson’s programs are offered for free or reduced costs to the participants. Donations from families, friends and others help to greatly offset expenses to this program.

Rock Steady Boxing

“I’m really hooked on boxing and movement being used to combat Parkinson’s. This type of exercise should be strongly recommended by MD’s to their Neuro patients.

My wife has noticed a positive change in attitude since starting the program. I’ve noticed that I’m taking on the dreaded motor symptom problems (pain, shaking, muscle locking, poor walking to name a few) with hard work and humor.

Thanks for making exercise for Parkinson’s patients very tough and challenging. We need it. But most of all, thanks for making it FUN.”
