Fighting the Battle Against Parkinson’s Disease.

Parkinson’s disease is a debilitating neurological disorder that progressively diminishes one’s ability to live and function independently.  Our Parkinson’s program uses education and the latest treatment strategies to help patients regain their independence and learn coping strategies to improve daily life.  The program treats all Parkinson’s-related impairments, including physical movement, speech, and daily living skills.

One-of-a-kind program.
Valir Rehabilitation Hospital is the only hospital in Oklahoma City and the surrounding area with the Parkinson’s Proficient Accreditation from Parkinson’s Foundation of the Heartland.  This accreditation means that Valir’s hospital staff participated in specialty training and testing to learn more about the disease, the healing process, and appropriate treatment strategies.

Everyone’s needs are different.
Our Parkinson’s program consists of numerous components geared towards the patient’s goals and needs, including:

  • Physician and nursing care
  • Patient and family education
  • Neuropsychological care
