Bethesda in Willmar, Minn., develops pilot project specializing in Parkinson's disease
WILLMAR -- Jim Terhune, 82, was set to drive to the Twin Cities -- a 200-mile round trip -- for intensive daily therapy to help manage Parkinson's disease.
But it turned out he could receive therapy much closer to home, through a comprehensive Parkinson's care program launched this year by Bethesda Health and Housing.
Since completing the physical therapy classes a few months ago, his symptoms have stabilized, Terhune said. "I'm not losing. It's a tremendous help."
