Parkinson’s Support Group

There is a Parkinson’s Support Group, designed specifically for persons with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers, conducted each month at the Hendricks County Senior Center. This month the group meets Aug. 14 at the center, 1201 Sycamore Lane in Danville.

Hendricks County Senior Services offers this service to help support those who are living with Parkinson’s Disease and those who care for Parkinson’s patients. Juli Krizan from Hendricks Regional Health will facilitate the support group.

Krizan is a physical therapist who has been practicing for more than 18 years, providing therapy to patients at Hendricks Regional Health.  

This month the guest speaker will be a nurse who will discuss lifesaving skills, basic emergency care, and teaching the Heimlich maneuver. Participants of the support group will receive emotional support, practical assistance in coping with the challenges they face, and the latest information about research. All meetings are confidential and free of charge.  

For more information on this support group, call Hendricks County Senior Services at 745-4303.

Those who would like to stay for lunch are asked to call the senior center at least 24 hours in advance. Lunch is a suggested donation of $2 for seniors age 60 and older.  Transportation is also available if arranged well in advance. New participants are always welcome and membership in the Hendricks County Senior Center is not required for this group.

The Hendricks County Senior Center is at 1201 Sycamore Lane in Danville.
