Parkinson Canada in Manitoba provides education and client services to an estimated 6,800 Manitobans with Parkinson’s disease (PD), and to their families, treatment team members, and employers.
Everyday in Canada more than 25 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) or Parkinsonisms. By 2031 it will increase to 51 per day.
Today the effects of Parkinson’s are only managed. There is no cure or treatment to slow the advancement of Parkinson’s. Research continues.
The primary issue for our clients is how to live well with PD. The affect(s) are numerous. Progression is unpredictable. We address this by providing education about the disease so they better understand their own symptoms, and how to work effectively with their health care team. With increased understanding of Parkinson’s they can improve their quality of life, making personal decisions regarding their treatment as they become more debilitated.
