Parkinsons Disease, LSVT & Rock Steady BoxingLSVT and How It Can Help Living with Parkinsons DiseaseLSVT stands for Lee Silverman Voice Treatment and was named for Mrs. Lee Silverman, a woman living with Parkinsons disease and was developed by Dr. Lorraine Ramig and has been scientifically studied for over 25 years with support from the National Institute for Deafness and other Communication Disorders within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other funding organizations.LSVT trains people with Parkinsons disease (PD) to use their body more normally. People living with PD or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. They may have trouble with getting around, getting dressed and with other activities of daily living. LSVT effectively trains improved movements for any activity, whether small motor tasks like buttoning a shirt or large motor tasks like getting up from sofa or chair or maintaining balance while walking. The treatment improves walking, self-care and other tasks by helping people recalibrate how they perceive their movements with what others actually see. It also teaches them how and when to apply extra effort to produce bigger motions more like the movements of everyone around them.LSVT treatment is customized to each persons specific needs and goals and can help regardless of the stage or severity of your condition. That said, the treatment may be most effective in early or middle stages of the condition, when patients can both improve function and potentially slow further symptom progression. Beginning the work with LSVT before there are significant problems with balance, mobility or posture will often lead to the best results, but its never too late to start. LSVT can produce significant improvements even for people facing considerable physical difficulties.Rock Steady BoxingThe Parkinsons Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Parkinsons disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. Rock Steady Boxing is the first gym in the country dedicated to the fight against Parkinsons. Rock Steady exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. At RSB, Parkinsons disease is the opponent. Exercises vary in purpose and form but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinsons, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life.Editor's Note: This article was submitted by Saad Healthcare.

When Saad set out to build The Retreat, maintaining the connection to nature was imperative. The property sits on 7 acres of undisturbed woodland that contains a gentle slope to the east, providing a quality typically found in the Appalachian highlands. Walking through the property mature water oaks, red oaks, and pines sit densely among the terrain. Owls hoot, birds chirp, and the transcendental elements of an untouched landscape clear the mind and provide peace for the soul. The property is beautiful, so keeping the aspects of the land or incorporating them into design was paramount. Trees were marked for keeping, plans were changed to include some of the most mature trees, but many still needed to be removed for the building to begin. Saad made contact with tree removal companies, but rather than haul the timber away, it felt only right to use it in the facility. Several companies and contractors insisted the trees were pulpwood at best. Pulpwood is timber with the principle use of making paper products. There was something melancholy about turning these trees into paper products, principally as a hospice company. Our stories live on with our loved ones and we felt these trees should be a part of The Retreats story.A sawyer was found who believed he could turn this timber into beautiful wood. Robert fit every aspect of the wonderfully simple definition of a sawyer: One who saws. Fueled by coffee and donuts, Robert diligently sawed trees down to usable lumber. Giant trees were cut for columns and beams in the lobby, smaller timber transformed into shiplap and trim for the hallways and patient rooms. The milling process took months to complete. The lumber after being cut was then transported to a drying facility before it could be sanded and stained for use. A defining feature of The Retreat is the wood elements incorporated throughout the property and it was made possible by Robert believing this lumber had more to give.Editors Note: This article was submitted by The Retreat at Saad Hospice.
