Heart Of Texas Parkinson’s And Caregivers Support (HOTPACS)
Exercise — Education — Inspiration
- Chair Exercise Classes address the physical side effects of Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders. Using a chair for support, whether sitting or standing, strengthens weakening muscles and improves coordination.
- Professional Speakers are scheduled once a month in September through June. HOTPACS invites certified professionals to speak about Parkinson’s research, treatments, therapies, and patient care management.
- Experience-Sharing Meetings are scheduled once a month for candid and confidential discussions in separate groups: one for people with Parkinson’s (PWPs); and one for their care partners.
Since its founding in 1986, HOTPACS has been the only non-profit organization to offer assistance to PWPs and care partners in Waco. Several participants in our group travel from elsewhere in Central Texas.
We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 – 4 p.m., at the Community Fellowship Church, 2001 N. Valley Mills Drive in Waco, where Cobbs Drive intersects.
HOTPACS is an IRS tax-exempt organization under 501(c)(3), section 590(a)(2).
