“Those who have a strong sense of love and belonging have the courage to be imperfect.” Brené Brown

We are proud that one of the key roles of Parkinson’s WA is fostering a sense of belonging - being part of a community that understands the condition, its challenges and that no two people have exactly the same symptoms or experience.

Here at Parkinson’s WA, we provide opportunities for our community to feel connected; belonging to a support group, attending a support program or even participating in A Walk in the Park.

All of these things are only possible with your help - your donations directly contribute to the services provided by Parkinson’s WA, including our essential Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist service, which is relied upon by so many.

Please support us today!

 

Parkinson's Western Australia Inc

Incorporated in 1984, Parkinson's Western Australia Inc. is a small not for profit organisation with the task of providing care and services to nearly 20,000 people living with or affected by Parkinson's in Western Australia.

Our vision is for a nation without Parkinson's.

Our mission is to encourage, develop and implement programs for the cure, treatment and care of people with Parkinson's.

At present there is no cure and as most people live for many years with this progressive condition, the primary focus of treatment is on the control and management of symptoms and reduction in complications associated with Parkinson's.

The Parkinson's WA's Nurse Specialist Service provides education, support, assessment and ongoing monitoring of people living with the condition. The Service covers the metropolitan and some regional areas in Western Australia.

There are 22 active Parkinson's Support Groups in the State. We also offer our community, access to regular weekly dance, tai chi, yoga and singing classes.

In addition to conducting seminars and funding research,Parkinson's WA provides an educational role to medical and allied health professionals with the aim of ensuring informed care.



“My husband and I recently attended a Parkinson’s WA seminar - the information was great but just to meet others affected by the condition was so important to us - we felt we were not alone, and that was comforting in itself” - Parkinson’s WA client
