Established in 1995, Eisenhower's Phillip and Carol Traub Parkinson's and Movement Disorder Center is the only facility in the Coachella Valley providing comprehensive care for patients with Parkinson's or other movement disorders and their families.
Our Center is recognized for the expertise of its clinicians and for its personal and compassionate care. The goal of our Center is to provide a multidisciplinary team approach tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient and the family.
In addition to its expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, our Center offers a number of programs for patients and caregivers including:
- Personal Empowerment support group sessions at which patients and caregivers meet separately to talk about the impact of Parkinson's disease on their lives. Guided by a trained facilitator, participants share their feelings and experiences in a confidential and supportive environment.
- The popular Songshine program that teaches Parkinson's patients how to strengthen their voices while discovering the power of music to influence their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
- PD in Motion, a program of exercises designed specifically for Parkinson's patients, that helps maintain optimal motor function, increase muscle strength and improve balance and gait.
- A Parkinson's Resource Guide
Other Eisenhower Medical Center services - such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, the Balance Institute, and nutritional counseling - also are available through the Center, and often play an important role in the treatment regimen.
As the number of Parkinson's patients continues to grow, fundraising plays an increasingly important role in ensuring that our Center is able to provide the quality care for which it is renowned. Tax-deductible contributions made on an annual basis, in honor or memory of a loved one, or in recognition of a special occasion, are always welcome.
