The Norton Neuroscience Institute Cressman Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders Center is dedicated to offering diagnoses and advanced treatments for people with Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders. Along with clinical care, support resources and education at every step, patients and their family members play an important role in the holistic care we provide.
With treatment and support for the whole patient, not just the disease, Norton Neuroscience Institute is the choice of more patients for their neurological care than any other provider in Louisville or Southern Indiana.
Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana, a Part of Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center

From one-on-one consultations with a navigator to patient support groups to exercise classes specifically for those with Parkinson’s, we work to create a community designed to support the whole person.

Parkinson’s Patient Navigator
The journey for each person with Parkinson’s disease and their family is different and sometimes can be difficult to navigate. Norton Neuroscience Institute offers patients and their families support through a dedicated patient navigator who helps guide you through your care journey, connect you with resources and answer questions. Services are free and available as often as you need them.
A patient navigator can:
- Educate you and your family members about your diagnosis, available treatments and ways to manage the disease.
- Help you take full advantage of a multidisciplinary team of health care providers who can offer their specialized insights as part of a coordinated approach to care.
- Assist with accurate and timely communication between you, your primary caregivers and your health care providers.
- Connect you and your family members with appropriate Norton Healthcare resources in Louisville and Southern Indiana.
- Identify and address any barriers to make sure you have access to high-quality care.
Parkinson’s Mentor Program
This unique program pairs Parkinson’s patients with Bellarmine University students pursuing a doctorate-level physical therapy degree to allow patients and students to build relationships based on a shared understanding and interest in the challenges of Parkinson’s.
As mentors for one another, patients and students have the opportunity to work together to improve patients’ self-confidence and quality of life, as well as reduce social isolation.
