Professional adapted physical activity services are available to provide you with a training program that meets your needs. Here are establishments recommended by Parkinson Montréal-Laval for their specialized expertise in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson in motion
Dance and sing with Parkinson on the move! The program is designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s. Dance classes started in 2007 and quickly became an important activity for many Montrealers living with Parkinson’s disease. A singing program was added in 2009. Moving to the beat of music is therapeutic, creative and fun! Dancing and singing with other like-minded people creates an atmosphere of pride, mutual aid and friendship. Classes are currently offered in three neighborhoods of the city (Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, Center-ville, Notre-Dame-de-Grâce), and others will open depending on demand.

Offered by the MUHC, in collaboration with the Quebec chronic pain association, “L’Atelier” is a self-management program for chronic pain, which is offered FREE. For more information visit mytoolbox.mcgill.ca
