Joe-McDuffGail Perry Borden is my Parkinson’s instructor at the Marblehead YMCA. Being fairly new at having Parkinson’s Disease I did not know where to turn. I found out that Gail started a program at the YMCA.
Since I have started she has taught me a lot of ways to deal with my condition such as the following; strength exercises, yoga for balance, getting out of chairs, turning without tripping, hand and finger exercises to keep) from stiffening up, facial and eye movements and how to cope with everyday life experiences. I love going to her classes and feel that it has helped me a great deal.
