Parkinson’s Disease Support

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic condition that requires regular follow-up care to ensure that symptoms are properly managed. Each person with Parkinson’s disease faces different challenges and can benefit from a personalized treatment plan. 

Specialists at NYU Langone’s Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center provide ongoing care and medication management for people with Parkinson’s disease, as well as a variety of support services.

Edmond J. Safra Parkinson's Wellness Program

The Edmond J. Safra Parkinson's Wellness Program is an award winning partnership between NYU Langone’s Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center and the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan.

It offers many opportunities for people with Parkinson’s disease to improve their quality of life. Fitness classes, support groups, and events are designed to keep people with Parkinson’s disease and their families and friends active, connected, and empowered. 

Social Work Services

Social workers at NYU Langone offer supportive services for people with Parkinson’s disease, as well as for their families and caregivers. Our social workers develop individualized support plans to meet a person’s needs and goals as they change over time. 

Social workers identify a person’s strengths and areas of concern then tap into a broad range of resources in order to provide referrals and care coordination. They also provide education and counseling for people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers and families. 

Support Groups

The Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center offers support groups for people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers. Experienced professionals lead the groups, which are offered at no charge.

Clinical Trials

Adults with Parkinson’s disease may benefit from participating in clinical trials. During a clinical trial, promising new medications, medical devices, or other treatments are tested in scientifically controlled settings. These studies are required for the approval of new therapies. 

The Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center maintains an active research program dedicated to helping our doctors gain a better understanding of the causes of Parkinson’s disease. Our experts investigate new therapies that may improve symptoms or slow disease progression.

You and your doctor can decide if a clinical trial is right for you.
