Parkinson’s Awareness Month

Did you know that May is National Parkinson’s Awareness month? The color for Parkinson’s disease is silver/gray, so our staff dressed up in those colors to show our support!

Paramount Rehab has multiple different services for those that have Parkinson’s disease:

1. We have a Parkinson’s support group which meets every third Friday of the month at 12:00pm. To learn more:

4. We have a class that takes place at the Freeland Sportszone on Thursday mornings. All movements focus on the principles from PWR! which stands for Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery. Although the moves are specific for people with Parkinson’s, these moves are beneficial for all individuals. The class is an hour long and the first part consists of warm-up, stretching and cardio drumming. The second half focuses on strength, balance and coordination. To learn more, please call our Saginaw office at (989)790-3781 and ask for Nicole.
