Retreat Applicant Process

1. Meet the Minimum Functional and Fitness Capabilities listed above.

2. Application Form. You will register at www.pwr4life.org/pwr-retreat/pwrretreat-registration-form/ using the secure HIPAA-compliant Application Form. Once the Application Form is completed, you will be prompted to complete the Release and Hold Harmless.

3. Release & Hold Harmless. All Participants must sign a Release & Hold Harmless agreement as a condition of participating in the PWR! Retreat. You will be prompted to complete this at the end of the Application Form, and a link to complete it will be sent to you via email.

4. Medical Release. Persons with Parkinson Disease (“PD”) must submit our Medical Release form signed by your movement disorders physician, neurologist, or primary care physician to be eligible to attend the Retreat. You may download and print the form from our website, and we will email it upon request. Your doctor may fax the form directly back to PWR! at 1-888-780-0154.

5. Virtual Interview. Once you have submitted the Application Form, Release & Hold Harmless, and the Medical Release, one of our team members will conduct a Virtual Interview with you to assess your ability to participate in and benefit from the Retreat. If the Retreat is not a good fit for you, we may recommend an alternative program or service that would better meet your individual needs and ability level.
