Who We Are
Positive Parkinson's is a new organisation whose aim is to significantly improve the quality of life for all those suffering from the condition, and their supporters. We believe living the best quality of life is possibile for everyone, despite Parkinson's effects.
Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but playing a poor hand well.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The happiest people don't have the best of everything,
They just make the most of everything.
The founders of this site are both those diagnosed with Parkinson's and people who support them. Thus we know the problems initimately by living with them.
Whilst we, like everyone else want a cure, we believe there are many sites dedicated to this aim, or to raising money for such a purpose.
This site we believe is unique in focusing on improving the quality of daily life for all concerned. We already know of many actions you can take to make your life better and we welcome all contributions which we can add to the site to help others.
Unfortunately the initial diagnosis is seldom accompanied with sound advice on what actions you need to take to maintain your quality of life. Our goal is to remedy this fundamental ommission and to try to improve medical practice in this regard.
