Parkinson's disease support group forms in Rhinelander

As an outgrowth of an "Understanding Parkinson Disease" seminar sponsored by the Wisconsin Parkinson Association last year, and in response to the needs of Northwoods residents, Norma Semling of Eagle River has formed an Oneida County Parkinson disease support group. The free meetings take place on the third Monday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. at Oneida County Senior Center, 100 W. Keenan Street, Rhinelander. Prospec-tive support group members may call Norma at (715) 545-3414 for more information.

Parkinson's support group meetings provide an opportunity for those living with Parkinson's to share experiences, situations, problems, and solutions, in addition to learning about the disease. Throughout the year, the group features a variety of guest speakers discussing the latest treatment options, new medications, research, exercise, nutrition, psychology, or other health issues, as well as social activities.

Symptoms of Parkinson's disease can include tremor, slowness of movement, rigidity, problems with balance, smaller handwriting, soft speech, dragging of feet, and a decreased sense of smell. Parkinson's is both chronic and progressive, and while there currently is no cure, the disease can be managed with medication, diet and nutrition, and exercise. Support groups can be an important component in helping to cope and live better with the disease.
