Social Gathering

This year we are returning to the Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone for our social gathering.On Saturday 6th September, we will hold an Information Update in the morning and will be scheduling interactive activities after lunch. Click HERE for more information.

MEDICAL CARDS

We have had a number of calls about people losing their medical cards. Our advice is to appeal the decision - you can read about how to go about that HERE.

Then you should ensure that the person with Parkinson's has a Long Term Illness (LTI) book. They are entitled to have this regardless of Medical Card status. This books allows all medication used for  treating the various aspects of PD to be dispensed for free. Read about the LTI scheme HERE


New information leaflets

We have added some new information leaflets to our collection, including Pain, Impulsive-Compulsive Behaviours, Dry Mouth and Reflexology. You can view them HERE or call us on 1800 359 359 and we will post some out to you.

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

 

Have you got a story to contribute to the PAI magazine? We want to hear from you!

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.
