Understanding Parkinson’s Disease


Oakmont East Recreation Center

Wednesday April 27th 2016 - to



At the April 27 SIR Branch #53 luncheon, Michael Bagwell will speak on “Increased Understanding and Awareness of Parkinson’s Disease.”

Parkinson’s leaves its mark on 200,000 families each year in the United States alone. Bagwell will discuss who Parkinson’s affects, the history and classification of the disease, causes, diagnosis and early warning signs. He’ll also cover stages of the disease, progression of symptoms, management and treatment, and advocacy issues.

Bagwell co-manages a business named Homewatch Caregivers, with his wife and business partner Hillary Wooton. The couple founded the business in Santa Rosa in 2013.

Bagwell, a native of Seattle, is a certified senior advisor and has experience with independent and assisted living, memory units, skilled nursing facilities and hospice care.

SIR Branch #53 meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Oakmont’s East Recreation Center, 7902 Oakmont Dr. A social hour starts at 11 a.m. with lunch at noon catered by J’s Grill & Cafe. Any Oakmont man interested in attending this presentation and/or membership should contract Vic Grail at 539-9574 or Don Green at 539-2046.
