About Campaign

Exercise is important for People with Parkinson - it helps them maintain their balance, mobility as well as the ability to perform daily routines.

Researches have shown that regular exercise can slow down the decline in the quality of life for People with Parkinson.

There is currently no cure for Parkinson, but staying active and regular exercise on top of medication, healthy diets, staying hydrated and getting adequate sleep are ways People with Parkinson can improve their health and well-being, preserve physical function, ease symptoms and enhance quality of life.

Help us keep People with Parkinson active!

Your generous donations will help us continue providing physiotherapy classes as well as other exercise classes such as adapted kickboxing, Tai Chi (standing & sitting), yoga, and many more socio-recreational activities to better serve the local Parkinson community.

THANK YOU!

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.
