Movement Disorders Program Resources

Oftentimes patients experiencing a movement disorder have needs outside of the medical scope which can impact their treatment and disease outcome. Patients with a movement disorder, their caregivers and their families have access to the services of the outreach coordinator and social worker at no cost as part of the St. Joseph's/Candler Movement Disorders Program. Aspects of our social, emotional, mental, financial and spiritual life can all help or hinder a movement disorder prognosis.

Outreach Coordinator Services

Our outreach coordinator focuses on the community connections, resources and educational and outreach programming for the Movement Disorders Program. An outreach coordinator acts as an educational resource for the community to teach about different movement disorders and how other aspects of their lives may impact their movement disorder. Additionally, the outreach coordinator works together with the social worker to identify new and existing community resources, support groups and other services for those in the Movement Disorder Program.
