Rush-Copley to Offer Support Group for Essential Tremor Patients

(Aurora, Ill) Essential tremor is a neurological condition that affects 10 million Americans.   Although it is not a life-threatening condition, it is a life-altering condition that causes trembling of the hands, head, legs or voice and frequently impacts every day activities such as eating, drinking and writing.

To help patients who suffer from essential tremor, Rush-Copley is pleased to announce a new support group.  Meetings will begin on Monday, March 24, at 10 a.m. at Rush-Copley’s Heart Institute, 2088 Ogden Avenue in Aurora. Support group meetings will continue to meet on the fourth Monday of every month from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Essential tremor can be frustrating in how it affects the quality of people’s lives.  While the severity of the tremor may vary from person to person, it often makes those affected self-conscious or anxious in social situations.

This group will offer an informal welcoming place where those affected can be themselves.  Patients will find support and fellowship among others living with essential tremor just like them.

There is no fee to attend.  For more information please call 630-499-6619.
