Exercise Classes Studies indicate that exercise plays an important role in the prevention or rate of progression of many diseases, including Parkinson's. For people who have been diagnosed, exercise is also a way to help cope with symptoms by enhancing flexibility, coordination, balance, and promoting wellness in general. Parkinson's Resources of Oregon sponsors a number of free movement classes based on the John Argue method, designed to combat Parkinson's symptoms. These classes are available without requiring payment, but available through donations made by participants.

Classes are offered on a quarterly basis and do require pre-registration.

Communication Programs

While some people think of Parkinson's as a disease that primarily impairs motor functions like walking, it can also cause changes in the volume and clarity of speech. Similar to exercising the rest of the muscles in your body, exercising good speech skills is a great way to strengthen the muscles involved in speaking and communicating.

PRO sponsors communication classes and groups to help people learn how to keep their voices and expressions loud and strong! Current locations include Bend, Salem, and Eugene, Oregon.

Ability to read music or understand music theory is not required. The group is currently meeting at Lake Grove Presbyterian Church in Lake Oswego and is offered in partnership with Earthtones Music Therapy.
