OUR MISSION FOR THE PARKINSON'S COMMUNITY
Skypass Foundation aims to provide a resource to those suffering from Parkinson's, as well as the caregivers and medical professionals that support them. Our goal is to empower those afflicted, educate those that provide care and equip medical professionals in this field.
WHAT IS PARKINSON'S DISEASE?
Parkinson's Disease is a chronic, progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects movement.
It is the second-most common age-related neurological disorder after Alzheimer's Disease. Effective management of this disease entails drug therapy, physical and speech therapy, good nutrition and exercise. As much as motor symptoms of Parkinson's are well-controlled with the above measures, non-motor symptoms emerging with disease progression contribute to ongoing disability in advanced stages.
