About the Chase Family Movement Disorders Center

The Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute Chase Family Movement Disorders Center combines the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic skills to provide compassionate and comprehensive care in the management of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other movement disorders. Every patient receives a personal and truly integrated approach to treatment that is focused on helping people with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders continue to do the things they need to do and love to do for as long as possible.

We believe that an overall sense of well-being and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are key to enhancing our neurologic care. In addition to cutting edge clinical trials research, pharmacologic management, and surgical options, our center provides psychosocial support for patients and caregivers through our behavioral health program. We have a highly specialized PD and movement disorders rehab program, and a partnership with Integrated Medicine to offer complementary and alternative medicine options such as acupuncture, tai chi, qigong, and therapeutic massage. The center includes a Community Wellness and Education Room as a venue for patient education programs and exercise classes such as PD dance, tai chi, boxing, and interval training.

The Chase Family Movement Disorders Center gives patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders a path to improved quality of life as we ensure that we are there to support them and provide their care from diagnosis to more challenging times with their disease.

Funds raised through Hartford HealthCare’s Stars Dancing for Parkinson’s will allow us to continue to grow and support our wellness programs, to further the latest therapeutic strategies and advance research, and capture outcome measures that will continue to elevate the breadth and depth of movement disorders services in Connecticut.
