One of the principal missions of the Parkinson Research Foundation that distinguishes it from other Parkinson organizations is a focus on patient education that enables Parkinson patients and their caregivers to live fuller and more comfortable lives with Parkinson’s disease. PRF’s seminars, conferences, and educational opportunities offer life-changing tools and knowledge for people affected by Parkinson’s disease.
One of our special projects for the 2012-2013 fiscal year was Parkinson Place a 7500 square foot facility whose mission is to bring evidence based programs free of charge to the Sarasota, Bradenton and Charlotte county Parkinson’s residents and their caregivers. Now Parkinson Place on the anniversary of its first year has proved a huge success and has encouraged our foundation to assist with their hope to extend the reach of this program to a National and even International level. By means of videos Parkinson’s patients and their caregivers will be able to participate in the free programs available to local Sarasota residents. This is a huge project with great potential to affect the lives of so many and we are very excited to be a part of it!
