Your Fundraising Provides Support, Fosters Education
From the moment anyone, anywhere in Canada is diagnosed Parkinson Canada remains a supportive voice and a reliable resource for questions, links, support and action. More than that, we provide emotional support. We stand together with the Parkinson Community. No matter what.
Our support group network, led by volunteers from coast-to-coast-to-coast serves more than 2,400 people across Canada. Our Information and Referral Line fields nearly 10,000 calls annually. 250,000 users browse Parkinson.ca for up to date information.
Through our education programs, we help to build a better understanding of Parkinson’s and improve the quality of care. Healthcare professional outreach campaigns and programs take place across the country to help educate staff working in hospitals and long-term care facilities.
7,500 copies of the Canadian Guidelines on Parkinson’s Disease are distributed each year. Over 1,500 Health Care Professionals receive in-person presentations, including with our Act on Time Program that emphasizes the priority of medication timing in managing Parkinson's. 1,800 Health Care professionals receive online learning to stay up to date on Parkinson's management.
And new resources are regularly produced to ensure people living with Parkinson's are well equipped to manage their Parkinson's at any stage.
