About Us

The Parkinson Support Center was founded in 2021, during the peak of the Covid19 pandemic, as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing access to care, education, and social assistance to patients and families affected by Parkinson’s Disease in Northern Nevada.

 

We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to supporting those with Parkinson’s disease, their family and community.  We want to help improve lives and forge connections.

 

Over 7,000 people in Nevada have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The Parkinson Support Center connects patients and caregivers to resources, education, and research.

 

We have four main areas of focus:

  • Public education and awareness 

  • Exercise and Therapy Programs for people with Parkinson’s disease;

  • Support groups and services for people with Parkinson's disease and their caregivers

  • Links to Resources 

 

We are not affiliated with any national organization. We do, however, collaborate with all organizations—both local and national—that seek to serve people who are living with this disease.

No one has to face Parkinson’s disease alone. We’re here for you!

To get involved, please contact us!
