The tremor in my hand, the masking of my face,
Me tying my shoelace at a frustratingly slow pace.
Now none of this will make me wither,
Because I have come to realize that
“TOGETHER WE MOVE BETTER”.
The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Society, (PDMDS) is an all India Charitable Society established in 2001 under the Societies Registration Act of 1860. It is a non profit organization which is committed to improving the lives of people living with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers and significant others. Having witnessed first-hand the suffering of patients with Parkinson’s disease, Dr Bhim S. Singhal, a renowned and much loved Neurologist and the Founder of PDMDS, decided to create a common platform for those afflicted by this condition to congregate, share, educate, motivate, inspire and become empowered.
To develop and coordinate support groups. Additionally, to act as a liaison between the various chapters and support groups in India.
A support group is an informal gathering of people who share similar experiences, situations or problems. By meeting together, Parkinson’s Support Group members can offer each other emotional and practical support.
In such a group, one is able to learn about Parkinson’s its problems and treatment. But most importantly the members share experiences and practical tips on living with Parkinson’s. Formal discussions, lectures and demonstrations on the many facets of the conditions are organized, drawing for the multidisciplinary approach.
