Support and Wellbeing

Activities supporting individuals impacted by Parkinson's


Parkinson's Africa provides a variety of support services to our beneficiaries, predominatly through delivery partner organisations. These services include home visits, telephone support, facilitating access to face-to-face or virtual support groups, occupational therapy and simply providing educational materials in a variety of African local languages.

TrapCAf, a multi-site research initiative funded by the NIHR, has had a significant influence, funding, and guidance on our support group programme. Parkinson's Africa is involved with the project's Community Involvement and Engagement (CEI) work stream, learning about the lived experiences of people with Parkinson's and their carers from health professionals, community leaders, and beneficiaries.
