In Singapore, hundreds of seniors suffering from Parkinson's disease often have difficulties moving around and require caregivers to assist them. Their mobility issues lead to increased loneliness and social isolation as many are unable to leave the house without assistance.
The Chinese New Year event at the Parkinson Centre seeks to bring these individuals together for a day of fun activities culminating in a traditional reunion lunch for the family they find in their peers. They are able to form lasting connections with their community instead of being alone during this festive season.
Amongst peers with Parkinson's disease, our beneficiaries are able to find a shared sense of camaraderie and belonging, which fulfils their emotional and social needs.
Your donations will help to cover the cost of reuniting the local Parkinson community this Chinese New Year.
