Young Parkinsons Ireland
Young Parkinson’s Ireland (Diagnosed before 60)
We offer information and support from people who understand and who know what it is like living with Young Onset Parkinson’s. We feel it is important to be connected with people living with this condition that are at the same life stages, so whether you are at school, college, work or a parent, there is support here for you.
The social events, classes and other activities are a good way to meet people and our group have a positive attitude which we believe helps manage PD. We are a nationwide branch of Parkinson’s Association of Ireland and we have committee members all over the country who are always willing to help people in their area and bring them together by organising coffee mornings etc. We are currently hosting Social Chats on Zoom, and due to the feedback, we may even continue these Zoom socials after the restrictions are lifted. You are welcome to ring for a chat before any social event if it helps, as it may less daunting to join in.
We are constantly looking for better services for our members and we always trying to come up with new ideas to help. We especially welcome new members, who will receive our newsletter and are welcome to join our closed Facebook page which is also a source of information and topical discussions.
