Community Resources for staying home

Thanks to the Parkinson’s community, there are many ways to learn and connect while you’re safe at home.

We’ve been contacted by organizations across the country with resources to keep you meaningfully engaged from the safety of your home. Below are some resources to learn and connect.

BGF Resources

Our online exercise videos and cooking videos are great ways to stay active and eat healthy during this time. We’re also hosting a Virtual Book Club every Tuesday in April and an Expert QA every Thursday in April. And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and friend us on Facebook for our live events!
