We know that as a caregiver it is not always easy to free up time to participate in some of our activities. Difficult, indeed, to leave his or her loved one alone during this time. This is the reason why, we offer you the Respite and Exercise service with our partner NeuroMotrix. How does it work? When a caregiver participates in one of the activities offered by Parkinson Montreal-Laval (self-help group, conference, telephone follow-up, etc.), the loved one can benefit from a free home exercise session with one of NeuroMotrix’s kinesiologists.
Thought for the well-being of both the caregiver and his or her loved one, this service allows:
- Caregivers to participate peacefully in our activities and benefit from the support and guidance they need;
- Loved ones to practice physical exercise, an essential element in maintaining their autonomy and improving their quality of life. In fact, physical activity has many advantages for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease: improvement of muscle flexibility, coordination, balance, decreased fatigability, reduced stress and much more.
Do not hesitate! If you would like to benefit from this service or if you have any questions, you can contact Janie Guénette by email [email protected] or by phone 514-868-0597, ext. 1.
NeuroMotrix is made up of a team of kinesiologists and scientific experts specialized in neurological disorders and the science of aging. Our expertise is adapted physical activity and our mission is to enhance the quality of life of people living with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.
