Our program is evidence-based and rooted in practice. Physical activity has been advocated for as an adjunct intervention for individuals with PD for years. This is rooted in practice from numerous publications spanning a few decades. IPF has then expanded upon this with partners at multiple R1 research institutions to yield evidence-based results on the benefits of our physical intervention protocols as they relate to Parkinson’s disease (PD), its symptoms, and its stages.

Barry Green

Hello, I am Barry Green. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 8 years ago. Shortly after that I heard about the CLIMB from my wife, Harriet, but I already belonged to the YMCA and figured I really didn’t need to join another organization just to exercise. I could do it on my own. However, I found out I wasn;t committed to doing it on a regular basis so I joined the CLIMB 5 years ago. I started out going 1x a week and that was not enough so I started 2 days a week and now I am going 4-5xs a… Read more “Barry Green”

Harold Wellman

I had felt worn out and crappy all day, but I forced myself to attend The CLIMB today. When I arrived I wasn’t sure I would make it through class. But I toughed it out and began to feel better. I got to talk to one friend I have made since I have been attending, and I made a new friend from class out in the parking lot on the way out of the building. I’m slowly learning that good things can happen if I just “show up” for life. Thanks so much for providing The CLIMB for all of… Read more “Harold Wellman”

Larry Smith attends regularly with his wife, Earletta, who has Parkinson’s. “I can’t say enough about how this has benefitted her,” he said. “She takes medication as well, of course, but there’s something about The CLIMB that’s more than medicine. It’s a wonderful outlet for those who are living with… Read more “Larry Smith”

Martin Allain

Indiana Parkinson’s Foundation has been a true growth process for me since my diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease. My first experience was my wife calling to find out what she could learn about my diagnosis. She was so pleased with the call back and the caring she felt. I followed up and received the same caring. I attended the 5K run and saw a wonderful well organized event. Then came “The Climb” and a true learning experience. Love, respect and dignity are essential in a positive health care environment and this is what exists at the meetings of “The Climb”. Each… Read more “Martin Allain”
