The Rehabilitation Department for Parkinson’s Disease and Severe Acquired Brain Injury was created in 2013 and added to the existing departments at the “Moriggia-Pelascini” Hospital of Gravedona ed Uniti, the area’s general hospital.
The Rehabilitation department has 100 beds, 60 of which are dedicated to inpatient multidisciplinary rehabilitative care of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease and parkinsonisms, such as progressive supranuclear palsy, multiple system atrophy, and dystonia. An average of 600 patients with PD and other Movement Disorders per year are admitted to this department for a comprehensive and intense rehabilitation treatment implemented with a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals.
The Center also provides 30 visits per week (5 days a week) dedicated to Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders for new and follow-up visits.
The Center collaborates with Italian and international centers on research projects on cognitive-motor rehabilitation, genetics, and creativity.
