Posted Apr 6th, 2021 in News

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month!

At Hotel Dieu Shaver, we are committed to helping those living with Parkinson's Disease live well, through the Steve Ludzik Centre for Parkinson's Rehab.

Thanks to the dedicated support of our staff, patients and community, HDS will be spreading awareness about Parkinson’s Disease and the Steve Ludzik Centre for Parkinson’s Rehab all month.

Tune into What’s New with Carrie Zeffiro on YourTV Niagara (Cogeco) on April 7th & 14th at 6:30pm or April 11th & 18th at 11:30am, as Assunta Berardocco, senior Physiotherapist at HDS, highlights the Parkinson’s Rehab Program and explains how to live well with Parkinson’s Disease.

On Friday, April 9th, ahead of World Parkinson's Day, HDS will be showing support and recognizing our good friend and dedicated partner Steve Ludzik and the Steve Ludzik Foundation by wearing our #LUDZYSTRONG t-shirts.

And finally, we are excited to unveil our newest HDS Program video below, highlighting the amazing things Hotel Dieu Shaver's Outpatient Neuro team and their patients are accomplishing! 

The Steve Ludzik Centre for Parkinson's Rehab Program at Hotel Dieu Shaver is 100% donor funded and relies solely on community support from donations, special events and fundraising initiatives - much like those driven by the Steve Ludzik Foundation
