With ten percent of Americans with Parkinson Disease residing in Palm Beach County, the need for services is immense. That is roughly one hundred thousand people. From facilitating the Caregiver Support groups through NPF we learn from the “snowbirds” that the services here in South Florida are truly spectacular and there are choices. We have many Movement specialists in Neurology, specialized outpatient Physical and Speech therapy programs, especially through Florida Movement Centers. NPF and other PD organizations raise money and provide other services.

Parkinson disease can progress over many years and does take a physical and emotional toll on the whole family. Spousal caregivers are encouraged to seek time for themselves and pursue interests they enjoy, as well as taking care of their own health. One of the reasons primary caregivers tend to die before the person they are caring for (60%) is because of the stress, anxiety and own self neglect.

It is our hope through this Fundraiser that we can contribute to the choices of programs and assistance the National Parkinson Foundations offers to residents of Palm Beach County.
