Heritage Woods of South Elgin, a Gardant affordable assisted living community, hosts a weekly exercise class designed for people with Parkinson’s disease. The classes are held from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. on Thursdays.
The community, which is located at 700 N. McLean Blvd. in South Elgin, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid.
The class is designed to improve strength and balance. Exercises will focus on large amplitude, high velocity movements and other techniques to combat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
Liz Wiggins, the marketing director at Heritage Woods, will teach the class. She is also an occupational therapist.
There is no charge to attend the class; guests are asked to register in advance. Participants will be asked to sign a release on the first day of class.
