Delay The Disease

The YMCA is dedicated to helping people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) manage their symptoms and maintain a quality of life. It’s one of the many reasons we offer OhioHealth Delay the DiseaseTM, a fitness program designed to empower people with PD to take control of the disease with daily exercise.
The empowering results of our Delay the Disease fitness program can help with:

  • Moving about with ease and confidence in a crowd
  • Getting out of bed or rising from a chair independently
  • Improved handwriting; dressing independently
  • Diminishing worry that stiffness, slow steps and other symptoms are obvious, regaining a sense of moving with normalit

Dates: Monthly – join at any time!
