About Campaignends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM
With the second most common neurodegenerative disorder affecting their motor and cognitive functions progressively, it has become more critical for People with Parkinson to continue staying active now more than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic when everyone is to stay home to stay safe.
As with some medical conditions, there is currently no cure for Parkinson. Exercise or staying active is a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and activities of daily living for People with Parkinson.
Currently, there are about 10,000 People with Parkinson in Singapore The numbers are expected to rise with the ageing population. 3 in every 1,000 individuals aged above 50 have Parkinson, but it affects younger ones too : about 5% are under 40.
Help us stretch out a hand of hope and encourage our Parkinson Warriors during this challenging period.
With our major fundraising events this year cancelled in lieu of COVID-19, every donation counts even more now.
Your kind donation will go towards helping us adopt technology, enhance our service continuity initiatives and operations at our Parkinson Centre so that we can better serve the needs of our beneficiaries, and help our Parkinson Warriors emerge stronger from this pandemic.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
About the Charity
Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1,000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre at Bishan provides people with Parkinson and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals.
Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 January 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).
Since then, the Society has organized a number of programmes including therapeutic exercise programmes, social and recreational activities and annual public forums, aimed at improving the lives of People with Parkinson (PwP).
The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, there are more than 8,000 PwP and the number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
