ABOUT US

Parkinson’s Connect is a locally owned and operated mobile out-patient therapy clinic. We provide Parkinson’s specialized physical, occupational, and speech therapy services as well as non-traditional wellness services.

We specialize in Parkinson’s specific treatments and provide therapy or wellness services in the privacy of your home, making it easy for you and your caregivers to receive the necessary support. We have additional options of serving our clients remotely through web-based conferencing services for those that reside outside of the Wichita area.

Our staff is highly qualified and each holds Parkinson’s specific certifications that give them the knowledge to uniquely guide you through your Parkinson’s journey. We will educate, support, and help you build the needed tools to fight the disease whether you are newly diagnosed or if you have been fighting the disease for years. 

We aspire to be your advocate through any stage of the disease and 

will work in collaboration with you, your physician, and Parkinson’s

team. Let us build YOUR personal research-based Parkinson’s

program.
