Parkinson’s and Neuroplasticity Wellness Support is scheduled from 1—2:30 p.m. Sept. 13. People with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological challenges, their care partners and others wanting to be part of a local Parkinson’s community support network are encouraged to attend these monthly talk story gatherings on the theme that health — physical, intellectual and spiritual — is wealth. The discussion focuses on personal experiences, community and PD related topics, including current research. Information exchanged is helpful, and attendance by regular and new members is encouraged.

Gentle Yoga for Aging or Limitations will meet from 2:30—4 p.m. Sept. 13, led by Mana Takei, RYT200.

Medicare Made Clear will be from 1-2 p.m. Sept. 15 and 10-11 a.m. Sept. 20, led by John Peters. As with many important things, health is often taken for granted until it’s too late. The challenge of having access to quality care when in need of “repair” is America’s beleaguered debate. While most of the political “circus” surrounding health care has been focused on “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, Medicare has an even bigger budgetary impact at the federal level, so it will inevitably get attention as well. With both certain and potential changes coming down the road, Medicare participants need to keep a close eye on the program. It is important to learn the words, understand the main ideas and become fluent in Medicare. The Medicare Made Clear program is designed to make that as easy as possible. Peters and Preferred Benefits Partners will present valuable and important-to-understand information.

Family Science Night at Earl’s Garage will be at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 15, hosted by Katherine DuBose-Oliver. Family members of all ages will be guided in an opportunity to work together and spend time exploring hands-on activities. Everything is provided, including food and supplies. Registration is required, and space is limited. Call Katherine at 885-6777 by Sept. 13 to reserve a space.
