Broadway's Best for Parkinson's
Caregiving Continued: Tough Topics—Sexuality, Spirituality, and Support

Join us for our next episode in this virtual series offering education, entertainment, and awareness to those living and thriving with Parkinson’s Disease. Dr. Alessandro DiRocco, director of the movement disorders program at Northwell Health, and Caroline Kohles, JCC senior director of Health and Wellness will discuss the difficult choices that arise as a family lives with Parkinson’s. From the subject of how intimacy between couples is impacted by PD to how decisions on home health care vs. assisted living can impact a family to the role spirituality can play in all of these decisions, we'll be talking with experts and families who have navigated these conversations and more.

We'll also celebrate the second night of Chanukah with Rabbi Simkha Weintraub, who will share how spirituality has been a tool in navigating his Parkinson’s. Cognitive hypnotherapist, Suzette Shahmoon will share her firsthand experience as both a care partner and a researcher studying the impact of Parkinson’s and intimacy in relationships. Broadway, film, and television actor Chris Jones and his wife, Mary Beth Coudal, will share how their family has made caregiving decisions. Choreographer and movement expert Pamela Quinn will give us a sneak peek of her PD Moves class and Broadway star Stephanie Lynne Mason will share her connection with Parkinson’s and perform for us.

This program is made possible by a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation. It is endorsed by Northwell Health and is part of the Edmond J Safra wellness program at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
