Exercise is the single most important thing we can do for ourselves to combat Parkinson's Disease. Exercise classes are held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 10:30 AM in the basement, at Broadway Baptist Church, 305 W Broadway, Fort Worth, Texas, 76104. (Which is located in the Hospital District near downtown Fort Worth, Texas, view on Google Maps) The Caregivers Support Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month at the same time as exercise class. Monthly educational meetings are held on the 4th Monday at 11:30 Janunary through June and September through December. The HEB exercise class starts at 12:30 on the second Tuesday of the month, with an educational meeting at 1:30 followed by a sharing and caring session for the caregivers and those with Parkinson's at the Bedford Public Library, 2424 Forest Ridge Drive. We would love to have anyone interested to come and join us as we manage the effects of Parkinson's Disease on the family.
Today the Parkinson's Support Group of Tarrant County continues to provide education, information, encouragement and practical help to the Parkinson's community in Tarrant County and surrounding area and has remained true to the original stated goals. The Support Group is a non profit (501c3) all volunteer organization with a board of directors elected by the membership. We depend on dues, memorials, other donations as well as volunteer labor. Several medical professionals volunteer and are greatly appreciated. Our group makes annual financial contributions to national foundations devoted to Parkinson's Disease research.
