Help us deliver Parkinson’s support in difficult circumstances.
Like you, the uncertainty of what’s going to happen during the Coronavirus Pandemic has left our Parkinson’s community vulnerable, stressed about access to medical care, and feeling extremely isolated.
We’ve had to quickly adapt the way we work. Our dedicated team of community-based Parkinson’s Specialist Nurses now extend support via telephone or various forms of videoconferencing – with technology training provided for anyone who requires it.
This enables them to provide personalised health advice to minimise Parkinson’s symptoms and help people avoid unnecessary hospital visits. They can also connect people with Allied Health professionals and even neurologists without them having to leave their homes.
Critical face-to-face meetings also continue, with strict hygiene measures to ensure the safety of our staff and those they support.
The Parkinson’s NSW InfoLine is staffed by experts including nurses, a social worker, a counsellor, and a Personal Trainer. They are supporting people in body and spirit throughout the pandemic.
If you have concerns about your health or that of your loved one, we encourage you to contact our InfoLine for support.
These services and our ability to respond to a changing environment are only made possible through the support of people like you.
Please consider a special gift today to Parkinson’s NSW to support our urgent response to people living with Parkinson’s in this pandemic emergency.
