Kaiser Permanente and the Comprehensive Movement Disorders Program is committed to helping you thrive while “safer at home” restrictions are in place to help reduce the spread of COVID 19.
Most of our clinics have moved to a virtual platform so you can still connect with your physician (neurologist, primary care doctor, and therapist) via email and video from your Kaiser Permanente account. Please be reassured that our in-person clinics are still open, and we can still send your prescriptions via expedited mail delivery, if necessary.
With Parkinson’s disease, it is important to stay active, engaged, and to continue exercising. Here are some online resources to help you exercise at home while in-person gyms and exercise programs have temporarily closed.
Wellbeing and Exercise:
- Dance for PD encourages people living with Parkinson’s to enjoy and benefit from dancing. Their full digital archive of classes–led by their team of New York-based teachers—is now available to everyone free of charge. No dance experience is required.
- The Brian Grant Foundation provides tools and programs focused on exercise, nutrition, community-building, cooking videos, and more.
- The Davis Phinney Foundation provides essential information, practical tools, and inspiration to people living with Parkinson’s and their caretakers.
The Parkinson’s Foundation makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure. Some of their helpful resources include:
- Aware In Care, a patient safety kit designed to get the best care possible during a hospital stay.
- The newly diagnosed program, a toolkit to help you start your journey to living well with Parkinson’s disease
- Library of publications, covering multiple topics and available in multiple formats
- Bilingual Helpline, 1-800-4PD-INFO, professionally staffed and available to answer PD questions, provide emotional support, and locate resources.
Remember, you can also go outside for walks and enjoy nature with a mask while remaining 6 feet away from others to help reduce the spread of COVID 19.
