Treating Parkinsons's Survey 2015

We would like to invite you to become involved in a nationwide project "Treating Parkinson's Survey 2015". The aim of this project, is to gather as much information as possible about the treatments people with Parkinson's Disease are relying on and the effect of these treatments on your quaility of life.
 We hope that this valuable information will allow us to -

1. To identify how sucessful we are in dealing with the main symptoms of PD in a large group of people living with it in 2015.

2. To shine a light on the areas where we are least successful in improving the symptoms of PD

3. To understand how many people with Parkinsons's experience troublesome fluctuations in thier response to their treatment.

100% funded by charitable donations and sponsorship

Did you know that we are totally reliant on charitable donations, membership and corportate sponsorship? We receive no government funding, and don't have any charity partners. We, like many other charities, are finding these economic times difficult while we strive to continue to offer free information and advice to people newly diagnosed with Parkinson's, as well as those living with Parkinson's, their families, carers and friends.
If you would like to make any donation, would like to organise or participate in a fundraising event, please contact us on 01-8722234 or contact our Fundraising team by email at fundraising@parkinsons.ie

 

We are looking for some stories, your experiences and your tales for our magazine. We are looking for articles and stories about things you have done, things you have experienced, good and bad, and all submissions will be considered. Hopefully this will be a regular feature going forward, as our feedback on the magazine says that people with Parkinson's want to hear about other people with Parkinson's.
If you have something you would like considered, please email it to info@parkinsons.ie or post it to us - Parkinson's Assoc of Ireland, Carmichael House, Nth Brunswick St, Dub 7.
