Important Message about Exercise from PASD’s Medical Director

5/22/2020

 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.

Exercise is medicine. But all exercise is NOT created equal. Research-based and an integration of meaningful movements as seen through the eyes of a physical therapist specializing in Parkinson’s. PD-Connect classes draw from a variety of Parkinson’s-specific protocols, including OhioHealth’s Delay The Disease™ (The #1 Parkinson’s Exercise Program), PWR!Moves®, NeuroMotorTraining (Karl Sterling), Brian Grant Foundation Boot Camp, Dance for PD®, ParkinsonWise, YogaReach Mindful Movement for Parkinson’s Disease, and adapted movements from martial arts and sports. The focus of each class centers around the principles of cardiovascular health, cognitive well-being, and core-strengthening, all tailored to address the predominant symptoms of PD. The goal of each class is to improve functional mobility, neuroplasticity, balance, strength, voice, cognition, posture, confidence, reduction of freezing, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

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.

Stay safe community!

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.

https://211sandiego.org/

 

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.

25 Mental Health Wellness Tips During Quarantine

Crisis Support
  • Veterans Crisis Line: Connect with the Veterans Crisis Line to reach caring, qualified responders with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Many of whom are Veterans themselves. The Veterans Crisis Line is free, confidential support, available 24/7 for all Veterans, Service members, National Guard and Reserve, and their family members and friends.
  • Helping Others Hold On: Compared to the civilian population, suicide rates among military Service Members and Veterans are very high. This series of lessons gives tools and tips to recognize, understand, and combat suicidal feelings in Veterans. Talking about suicide can actually help a Veteran and any support they receive can make a difference in their lives.
  • 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.
Education

 

Exercise

  • The American Heart Association: Ways to Get Moving: Incorporate physical activity breaks at home to help your kids get their recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity a day.
  • The Cooper Institute: Students participating in the FitnessGram assessment gain a better understanding of their own health-related fitness. Schools that include the FitnessGram assessment in their physical education programs are better equipped to meet student fitness needs and teach healthy habits that will last well into the future.

 

Financial Support

  • Gary Sinise Foundation: Any military service members, Veterans, first responders, and their families affected by COVID-19 can apply for financial assistance through an initiative of the Foundation’s Relief and Resiliency program, called H.O.P.E. (heal, overcome, persevere, and excel).

Food Insecurity & Recipes

 Fun Ideas While at Home

  • 12 Museums around the World that offer Virtual Tours: Google Arts & Culture collection includes the British Museum in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim in New York City, and literally hundreds of  more places where you can gain knowledge about art, history, and science. This collection is especially good for students who are looking for ways to  stay on top of their studies while schools are closed.
  • Virtual Field Trips: Virtual field trips are a great way to expose kids to new places all from the comfort of home. In this age of technology, so many museums, zoos, and aquariums have set up virtual tours and webcams of their facilities. Now more than ever, is it easier to visit destinations around the world from the comfort of your couch.
  • Online Workout Resources: These are the 50 best resources for free online workouts that make it easy for you to exercise at home. Whether you have just a few minutes for a quick core workout, or if you’d like to join a month-long daily yoga challenge, there is something here that will help you exercise at home.
  • What to Watch, Listen to, and Cook During Quarantine: You are staying home and you need a distraction 삼성 리커버리 솔루션 8 다운로드. The New York Times updates this recommendation list every weekday.


Healthcare Support

  • Alcoholic Anonymous: Browse the Online Meeting Directories. Email, chat, audio, and forums meetings in a variety of languages are in progress.
  • Centers for Disease Control: The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.
  • Department of Veterans Affairs: Call your VA Medical Center before going to a clinic, urgent care, or emergency room, especially if you have symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath. Calling first helps us protect you, medical staff, and other patients. Ask your VA health care team about the option of care by phone or video instead of an in-person visit. We also ask that visitors who feel unwell postpone their visits to VA facilities. Visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for the latest coronavirus information. You can also read about VA’s public health response.
  • National Institutes of Health: NIH provides the most up-to-date research information on COVID-19 and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control.

 

Online Caregivers Support/Community

 

  • Hidden Heroes: If you are a military caregiver, we encourage you to connect with a community of your peers via Hidden Heroes’ secure Facebook group and Caregiver Q&A, to share experiences and advice with those who’ve been there. They also offer access to educational online courses to help you through the challenges of caregiving.
  • Operation Family Caregiver: Operation Family Caregiver can be delivered to caregivers anywhere in the United States via video conferencing,  phone, or in-person in several locations. Complete and send the referral form to their national office, or contact one of these sites to learn more about how Operation Family Caregiver might help you. Reaching out is a sign of strength.
  • Hope For The Warriors: Hope for the Warriors understands the challenges, pride, and joy of being a military family. For today, tomorrow, and years to come, we will strive to meet the changing needs of service members and their families.
  • VA Caregiver Support: VA’s National Caregiver Support Line (CSL) serves as a primary resource/referral center to assist caregivers, Veterans, and others seeking caregiver information. VA’s Caregiver Support Line has licensed caring professionals standing by.

 

Self-Care

  • PsychArmor: The United States is home to more than 5.5 million military caregivers. Sponsored by The USAA Foundation, Inc., PsychArmor offers courses to help caregivers balance their duties and need for self-care.  This library of 45+ courses provides information, resources, and strategies on how to manage the demands and stressors of caregiving.

Dolomite Fundraising Trek 2020

 

Update regarding the Dolomite Trek from Sherrie Gould:

 

Dear All,

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?

Sherrie

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!

Please donate to the event and/or sponsor a hiker
