Dear Neuro Challenge Community,

Moving to Florida last year led to the myth that we will no longer experience the four seasons. While it can be hard to tell the difference between summer and fall in Florida, the ads for pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween decorations in the stores reminds us that a season change is upon us. With the change of seasons comes changes at Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s.

What’s new:
  • Online Registration- We’ve recently implemented online registration for all of our Programs. To sign up for the programs you want to attend visit the the Program Calendar at to register. If you are unable to register in time, you can still attend the program and one of our friendly Care Advisors will register you.
  • New Support Group- Living with Loss in partnership with Empath/Tidewell Hospice of Charlotte County. This support group is for people who find themselves grieving over the loss of a loved one, or YOU are grieving the loss of abilities since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.
  • New Therapeutic Program- SMARTfit Neuro Cognitive Exercise in partnership with Grand Living of Lakewood Ranch. SMARTfit combines computer technology with brain health programs and physical exercise for functional fitness.  
  • New Educational Series- Parkinson’s Lunch & Learn in partnership with JFCS of the Suncoast. This is a monthly education series for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners. Sessions will include topics such as fall prevention, mind-body wellness, the importance of laughter and home safety. Check out the program calendar for a full schedule of the educational sessions.
  • New Therapeutic Program- Aquatic Group Therapy in partnership with Freedom Rehab Center- This therapeutic program involves exercising conducted in a pool. This program is open to people with Parkinson’s and their care partner and is offered at no cost.

We hope to see you at a program this month.
