About Our Programs
People living with and affected by Parkinson disease and Parkinson’s Plus Syndromes are at the center of all we do. We work to support and guide individuals and families throughout their Parkinson’s journeys and empower them to lead active and productive lives. We also work to inform and educate within the communities our clients live. We help build strong foundations.
We do this by offering a variety of program options via in-person and tele/online delivery so that regardless of where you live in the province YOU can access support and services customized to you…when and where you need it.
Our no-cost support programs are all about empowerment! The journey of empowerment includes gaining information, receiving advice, setting and achieving goals, sharing experiences, and making connections with fellow peers, health care providers and others in the community. It can also include acquiring a sense of confidence to talk openly and honestly about one’s disease to family, friends and those in your circle as well as with health care professionals.
Empowerment can increase self-confidence and personal strength, bring about changes in lifestyle and outlook, and feelings of being inspired and energized.
Our support programs include:
This valuable program provides you, your loved one(s) and other family members or friends a confidential and safe space to ask questions, talk about stresses and concerns, establish goals and actions plans, and learn more about community and government resources.
Whether it is a desire to learn more, to share experiences and/or to be a part of a community. Attending a support group can be a great way to learn about Parkinson’s, develop better coping skills, and feel less isolated as you make connections with others facing similar challenges.
Whether you are at the beginning of a Parkinson’s journey, or have been travelling the path for many years, education contributes to health and well-being. By equipping people with knowledge and skills for problem solving, education helps provide a sense of control and mastery over life circumstances. And it improves people’s ability to access and understand information to help keep them healthy.
