Baumann visits Parkinson’s support group at nursing home

John, I apologize for the delay in getting you this review from your visit to our January PD support group! We so appreciated your time in speaking with our elders…they are still talking about you J I hope that you are able to use this.

Thanks again!!

John visited our Parkinson’s support group held at our nursing home and spoke with a group of our elders with PD. Feedback from the elders present was that John was ‘an excellent motivational speaker’ and the elders were ‘truly inspired by what he had to say’. John used personal life stories and antidotes in discussing the disappointments, challenges, and, yes, the accomplishments that Parkinson’s can present to those with the disease; and how he has dealt with all of this with a positive attitude. John related very well to his audience, leaving them with the message that no matter what one’s age, a positive ‘can do’ attitude matters!
