APDA Rehab Resource Center at BU

Welcome to the country’s first National Resource Center for Rehabilitation, established by the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) and Boston University. This Center was established to help people who have Parkinson’s disease (PD) access information on exercise recommendations.

This new Resource Center grew out of  the Center for Neurorehabilitation’s Community Wellness Programs, which are exercise programs designed to improve mobility, quality of life and communications for persons with PD. These programs have benefited more than 400 people in 14 New England communities.

The objective of the Center is to share knowledge with patients, caregivers, students and health care professionals. Our toll-free “helpline” enables callers to speak with a licensed physical therapist who can answer questions about exercise, provide information about programs in the caller’s area and provide educational materials.
