‘S’ Generation Center in Painesville Ohio launches new Parkinson’s Disease
fitness program featuring OhioHealth Delay the Disease —
the nation’s leading Parkinson’s Disease exercise program.

‘S’ Generation center (440-357-6666) located in Painesville offers a new, life-changing fitness and mobility program expressly designed for people with Parkinson’s disease. Led by nurse consultant STELLA NSONG, RN a certified OhioHealth Delay the Disease instructor, the program improves the physical, mental, and emotional realities of Parkinson’s Disease patients.

“We had a gentleman that on his first day here, we almost had to carry him into the building because he could barely walk and after seven sessions, he was able to walk using his walker and within 6 weeks, he was able to run. He sleeps better, his wife is happy and so is he” reports one of the center nurses. This has been a life changing functional fitness program that helps patients with Parkinson’s disease have a better quality of life.

David Zid (BA, ACE, APG), the leading Parkinson’s fitness specialist and OhioHealth Director of Movement Disorder and Musculoskeletal Wellness, and Jackie Russell (RN, BSN, CNOR), OhioHealth Program Development Coordinator, collaborated to create the most effective wellness program empowering people with PD to live better and experience new levels of hope in their daily walk. This program delivers symptom-specific exercises that optimize function and restore independence. At the ‘S’ Generation center, the Delay The Disease exercise program is incorporated into the daily activities so there is no additional charge for the people who attend the center. Delay the Disease participants experience improvement in mobility, posture, balance, handwriting, speech volume, and a reduction in daily functional challenges. The classes are a source of fun, social camaraderie, and hope. “Parkinson Disease patients can manage their disease through exercise — and we encourage everyone to start today! We’re here to help,” says David Zid and Stella Nsong. Our goal is to make the benefits of Delay the Disease classes available to as many people with PD as possible.
