LATEST NEWS

Rock Steady Boxing Now in Watertown:

 

We never could have imagined how opening our Rock Steady Boxing Gym would impact all of our lives. For all of us, this was our first experience with either leading or attending a Rock Steady Boxing Class and it’s safe to say that we’ve all been blown away by the experience. The level of camaraderie, the overcoming of both non-motor and motor symptoms and the sharing of emotions through both laughter and tears, have provided such a positive experience for everyone involved!  What we have built together isn’t just an exercise program, it’s taking on Parkinson’s disease at its most vulnerable space:  the human spirit! Are we making a difference? YES!  As one of our boxing families expressed, “It is now one step forward, instead of three back!” This group has also taken on public speaking as they share their personal journeys through requests to speak to local college groups. They meet monthly as part of a “Parkinson’s Support Group,” and they have connected with one another outside of group activities as well, so there is always a line of support when needed.

Struthers Care Network

Struthers Parkinson’s Center wants to prepare your organization to provide quality care for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Through the Struthers Parkinson’s Care Network (SPCN) their training is designed to prepare organizations to meet the growing requests from patients, families and organizations serving the Parkinson’s community. The SPCN is comprised of senior residential communities and homecare agencies that have made a commitment to improve care and provide support to people living with PD.

 

Currently, there are 4 locations in Sioux Falls (Dow Rummel Village, Touchmark At All Saints, The Inn on Westport, and Active Generations) and 1 in Luverne, MN (Good Samaritan Society) that are all members of the SPCN and we anticipate additional locations following another training opportunity November 5th & 6th, 2019 in Sioux Falls. To learn more about annual SPCN membership benefits please contact the SD Parkinson Foundation at 605.271.6113.
