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).
