Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Support Group Events
When your physical health is affected, every angle of life seems to be changed. Challenges arise, relationships evolve and a new normal develops. Often, making time to have fun falls to the bottom of your list, but friendship, laughter and joy can be the best medicine of all. This group was created for those who have experienced life-changing health events. Friends, family and caregivers are always invited and encouraged to attend as well! Whether you are new to your condition or a long-time veteran, this is a welcoming place for you to have some well-deserved fun at pre-scheduled events! Along the way, you’ll also be able to learn, share and get to know others who are experiencing similar challenges, changes and success.

About the Group:
The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation support group at UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Hospital is called "PMR Friends & Wellness." We encourage anyone who has experienced a life-changing health event such as a stroke, spinal cord injury or Parkinson's Disease, as well as family and friends of all ages to participate! When you experience a major change in your health, everything from your daily routine to relationships with family and friends is affected. Often, making time to have fun falls to the bottom of your list – but friendship, laughter and joy can be the best medicine of all! Meet up for some fun and conversation with others who are going through many of the same experiences.
Pre-registration is not required, although if you know you're planning to come, we like to plan ahead to make sure there's enough seats (and bowling lanes)! E-mail Kristin.Biedermann@unitypoint.org or call 319-369-8877.
