Parkinsons Exercise Class
Research suggests that exercise can help delay and improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and enhance quality of life for individuals with Parkinson’s. This class uses a multi-disciplinary approach to address most of the symptoms of Parkinson’s, from posture and movement to voice and facial expression, in a supportive, non-threatening environment. Taught by certified professionals, this program uses a variety of activities such as Tai Chi, Pilates, strength training, stretching and functional movement to improve muscle strength, agility, flexibility and balance.
All participants must be able to get up and down from the floor with a chair and walk 100 feet independently with or without an assistive device.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Adult Fitness Coordinator, Meli Kirkwood, at email@example.com.
Community Programs and Connections
Part of our mission at NECC is to support the people and the work of the community. We do this through sharing our space with nonprofits or helping to organize community projects like clean-ups, informational campaigns, workshops, or even collaborative projects.
We believe that a strong community works together, and that NECC can lead the way through innovative partnerships, meaningful events, and lots of creativity. Please take some time to see more about our programs and find your place in the community through NECC.
Albertina Kerr Giving Tree
Each December, the NECC community donates gifts for local children and disabled adults. Many NECC members have received their “wings” from Albertina Kerr for giving to the group homes. Look for the Holiday Giving Tree in the NECC lobby each year after Thanksgiving.
