Danica’s Scripps Boot Camp Exercise Video
Dear Parkinson’s Community:
It has come to my attention as well as to my fellow movement disorder specialists, that due to these unprecedented COVID times, which has drastically affected access to exercise facilities, many Parkinson’s patients are not able to be as active as they were prior to the pandemic.
As physicians, what we have been seeing clinically is a dramatic change in disease progression and control of overall Parkinson’s symptoms since the start of the pandemic. Although, there are a number of variables that may be causing this effect, like stress, anxiety, or illness, the common thread seems to be a lack of exercise. It is a well known fact, as has been reported in the literature, that exercise has the ability to slow disease progression in Parkinson’s disease and even modulate symptoms when patients adhere to a regular routine regimen that involves Aerobic exercise of at least 3-4 days per week 바이두 판.
Some patients have taken it upon themselves to try to remain active by increasing their daily walking as a substitute for going to the gym or taking an exercise class. Although, we would encourage you to try to remain active, doing whatever exercise you can, it does not appear that walking alone makes for a good substitute for regular routine aerobic exercise at a gym or from an exercise class. I have had many patients tell me that they even increased the duration and frequency of walking and yet still they are doing more poorly in terms of their Parkinson’s symptoms.
Because of the current state we are in with the pandemic, it is of utmost importance to try to remain healthy and keep your Parkinson’s symptoms under control. We want you to know that the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego is here for you and have compiled a list of exercise options that are either pre-recorded online exercise classes or live zoom classes.

A MUST HAVE FOR ALL PEOPLE WITH PARKINSON’S IN THE EVENT OF A TRIP TO THE HOSPITAL!
Hello to all our friends in the San Diego Parkinson’s community,
We sincerely hope everyone is doing well during these challenging times of COVID-19. Our goal is to ensure that each and every person with Parkinson’s has all the tools and resources necessary to live their best life. And that includes planning for bumps in the road, as well. We want to remind everyone of an important resource EVERY SINGLE PERSON WITH PARKINSON’S needs to have in their possession in the event of a trip to the hospital. It is the Parkinson’s Aware and Care kit that the Parkinson’s Foundation will ship free to your home. In it you will find all the tools to safely navigate a trip to the hospital, while at the same time managing your Parkinson’s disease effectively. It is very easy to order – just click the link below and add a kit to the cart or call 1.800.473.4636. If anyone has any trouble with ordering, please let us know and we can get one shipped to you.
In addition, attached you will find an important letter from the Parkinson’s Foundation regarding hospitalization, Parkinson’s and COVID-19 다운로드. Please print and have your Neurologist sign it, and put it in your Aware in Care kit. BE PREPARED!
Lastly, we want to remind everyone, social distancing, correctly stated, is physical distancing. It does not mean social isolation, but rather physical separation to avoid transmission of the virus! With that in mind, there are numerous online support groups and educational programs to keep us all connected throughout this journey. All of the support groups are listed on our website https://parkinsonsassociation.org/. Any questions regarding groups, please call us at 1.858.999.5671.

To our Parkinson’s Community:
On March 15th, PASD sent a letter to you all regarding COVID-19. That letter included a recommendation for using the San Diego 211 hotline for up to date information. Unfortunately, that hotline is being flooded with a very high call volume. San Diego County has since asked the community to direct any medical related question to their primary care Physician. The 211 website remains a very good resource, with the most up to date information regarding COVID-19. You can access that website by using the link below.
We are currently living in an unprecedented time of challenge coping with the world wide COVID-19 crisis. The Parkinson’s Association of San Diego wants to provide some helpful community resources you may find useful while you navigate the challenge of taking special care to practice social distancing while ensuring all your basic needs are met. There are many wonderful groups here in San Diego that provide home delivered meals and grocery delivery to those in need. And as a reminder, all pharmacies now offer home delivery. Or better yet, ask for a 90 day supply through your insurance carrier’s mail order pharmacy! Planning ahead reduces stress in the long run. All of this information can also be found on the 211 San Diego website, but wanted to include a few of the groups below.

- S.A.V.E.: Our hope for this course is that you will become empowered to play a vital role in suicide prevention. This course was developed in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs and is presented by Dr. Megan McCarthy, Deputy Director of Suicide Prevention. You will develop a general understanding of the problem of suicide in the United States, understand how to identify a Veteran who may be at risk for suicide, and know what to do if you identify a Veteran at risk. Each of us has the opportunity to be that one person who makes a difference — the person who asks the question that can save a Veteran’s life, or the life of anyone struggling with the thoughts of suicide. Using the simple steps of S.A.V.E., we can all make a difference.

Dolomite Fundraising Trek 2020
Update regarding the Dolomite Trek from Sherrie Gould:
It’s been quite the whirlwind of decision making about our upcoming trek to the Italian Dolomites! Do we go? Do we not? Do we even want to THINK about being on an airplane for 14 hours in light of COVID-19???? How about our deposits?
Finally, I have some answers! I have been communicating with our trekking company Dolomite Treks, Anna and Isabelle….great news, they are going to issue a credit of our full deposit to be applied to our NEW trekking date in 2021 of JULY 9 through July 16th (leaving on the 17th) 다운로드. This is GREAT news!!!! We will begin our training schedule in February of 2021. Cool weather training, how fabulous is that??
Our fundraising efforts will continue…Remember we have a $2000 commitment to the wonderful Parkinson’s Association of San Diego….we have lots of time to make our commitment.
Also we have had some spots have open up. If you know of anyone who would like to join us please let me know.
So during this continued time of readjustment to the “new normal” we will all have something HUGE to look forward to…an international trip to experience the Dolomites during peak wildflower season..amazing. I would love to organize some hikes for our group way before February of 2021 but right now is still too soon to get together in large groups. We ill do so once it is safe.
We are strong…and determined…we can mange adversity and change…we have power over Parkinson’s and power to endure social distancing.
Big hugs and high hopes and excitement for the future?
This 8 night, nine day mountainous hike in Northern Italy is to empower those with Parkinson’s disease to know “THEY CAN” and to inspire others around the world with Parkinson’s to do more than they ever thought possible! This adventure will take place from September 5 to September 13th, 2020. Training for the hike will begin in April with a kickoff hike at Lake Poway. We will stay in a combination of mountain “Refugios” (huts) and in small hotels sprinkled throughout the Dolomite mountains. Whether you hike with us virtually (we will tell you how) or join us in Italy this effort will reward you with power, friendships and a huge sense of accomplishment for years to come. We are so proud to be raising money for the wonderful Parkinson’s Association of San Diego….not only will we be healing ourselves but our altruistic endeavors will reward this wonderful community we live in. JOIN US!
