The South Dakota Parkinson Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people touched by Parkinson’s disease.

OUR MISSION

The South Dakota Parkinson Foundation is a group of dedicated and passionate volunteers that are committed to helping and supporting our members with a unique and very personal touch. What started as a small support group formed at Sioux Valley Hospital in Sioux Falls has evolved into a state-wide organization that is focused on improving the quality of life of those that have been affected by Parkinson’s disease.

 

Parkinson’s disease touches nearly one million people in the United States alone. While a cure has yet to be found, there are several ways to treat and slow the effects of the disease. Our organization exists to provide people with Parkinson’s and their families, friends and healthcare professionals with education and support. This includes providing various programs and services, along with raising awareness of the disease and the affect it has on the lives that it touches.

 

Though much has changed over the years and will continue to change in keeping with needs and developments, this service organization has always been, and remains, strongly rooted in a tradition of caring.  If this sounds like you or someone you know or if someone you are close to has been affected with this life-changing disease and you would like to help, get in touch with us. It only takes a bit of time and energy to make a big difference in someone’s life.
