My mother has a woman with Parkinsons in her exercise class (for elderly people) and she is hoping to improve her symptoms with exercise. I didn't know it was possible. Does anyone have experience with it?

This ois definately true! Ask Lauren Sue about exercise and you will know why I say this. Actually anyone with PD will attest to the benefits. Any form of exercise that the person is able to do comfortably will help in some way...!
