The CARESPACE Parkinson’s Program

Under the guidance of program Director Dr. Quincy Almeida, the CARESPACE Parkinson (and Neurodegenerative Disorder) Program brings together a dedicated team of multidisciplinary regulated health professionals who collaborate together to develop personalized coordinated health plans for people with Parkinson’s. Disease progression is measured and tracked using the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) and health plans are adjusted as required.

  • Know where you’re at and track progression with a UPDRS score
  • Get nutritional counselling and advice
  • Help with sleep or lifestyle changes
  • Psychotherapy for anxiety and depression
  • Exercise prescription to reduce symptoms and slow progression
  • Massage therapy
  • Caregiver counselling and support

What are your goals?

You are more than a diagnosis. You have goals that you want to achieve and have contributions to make. You have a life to live — and you still can. Neurodegenerative Disorders create new challenges and barriers and you don’t have to navigate them alone. CARESPACE Health+Wellness provides access to your very own health team dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.

Get your very own health team

Dr. Almeida leads a team of regulated health professionals including Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists, Chiropractors, Dietitians, Massage Therapists, Naturopathic Doctors, Psychotherapists and Social Workers. The team collaborates both together and with you to develop achievable goals. With coordinated care you can track your progression, get the best evidence-based advice and support with health plans personalized for your own unique situation.

The Initial Assessment

The Initial Assessment is an intensive hour and a half appointment with Dr. Almeida that will include taking your history and completing several assessments and analysis which will result in providing you with a baseline Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) score. Based on the outcome, Dr. Almeida will provide personalized education* on topics such as drug interaction, food digestion and exercise. Where appropriate, he will also provide referrals to other members of the team for follow up visits.

A no-charge Fitness Review with a Registered Kinesiologist and no-charge Nutritional Review with a Registered Dietitian or Naturopathic Doctor are included in the price of the initial appointment. They may be scheduled with follow up visits during the first appointment and are available either in-clinic or online via TeleCARE.

*Personalized education is intended to supplement rather than supplant or replace advice from your medical doctor, neurologist or pharmacist.

Insurance and group benefits

Dr. Almeida is an educator and researcher and therefore his fees are not covered under OHIP, group benefits or other insurance plans. Most other CARESPACE services are covered under most group benefit or insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider for more information.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
