Cardel Homes is partnering with the Parkinson Association of the Rockies in a push-up challenge to raise funds and awareness to fight this debilitating disorder that affects over 4 million people worldwide.
Participants are asked to challenge one another to do push-ups (creativity is highly encouraged), record it on video and post it on the Push-ups 4 Parkinson’s Facebook page with the hashtag #pushups4parkinsons and then donate a desired amount to their local Parkinson’s organization.
Cardel Homes will also match contributions made to the Parkinson Association for this campaign dollar-for-dollar, for up to a total of $25,000!

Be sure your doctor is a movement disorder specialist/neurologist (MDS).
Even if your doctor is a neurologist, this does not mean that he/she has the experience or education with movement disorders that will enable them to provide the specific care you need.
Fall Prevention ...
Falls can be very frightening to individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners. They generally are dramatic and symbolize a loss of control. One of our major goals as an organization is to educate individuals living with Parkinson’s disease on fall prevention and identify ways to prevent falls.
Do you ever get the feeling that you are working for your home? I am not talking about the many years you spend paying for your home. The question is how often do you find that your home makes every day life easier for you?
When the doctor first utters the words hospice or palliative care, many people freeze. No one wants to hear those words used in reference to their loved one. It’s scary and often families have no idea what this means. Instead of feeling relieved and empowered, families often feel anxious. Many people don’t actually know what palliative care is and how it can help a loved one achieve a better quality of life.
