For more than 25 years, the Parkinson Association of Northern California has been providing programs and services to improve the quality of life for those facing Parkinson’s disease throughout our region. In the past several years, we have made great strides in developing new and viable services. The Parkinson Association's programing emphasis supports the fact that while there is no cure for Parkinson’s, those diagnosed with the disease can take steps to live well.
The Parkinson Association of Northern California is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with Parkinson's, their families and carepartners. We live our motto, "Building Community for the Journey."
The Parkinson Association is not affiliated with any of the other national organizations that focus on Parkinson’s disease. This gives us autonomy to direct our funding specifically at programs and services to assist this population. We are funded by the generosity of donations and do not assess fees for most of the services that we provide including Support Groups, the Parkinson's Path newsletter, subsidies for respite, and Rebuilding Together, Sacramento, etc.
Please Note: ShiningCare does not specifically endorse the activities of these organizations, but offers their information as a sample of the kinds of materials and services that are available.
