The ‘go to’ charity for those with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease.
These are our three main aims:
• To have YOPD recognised in the UK and beyond as a separate condition with specific symptoms and life challenges.
• To appreciate that those with YOPD should be considered a long-term investment – with emphasis on exercise, diet, counselling and better treatment options – especially when the oral medications are no longer an option.
• To give the newly diagnosed, and those around them, the strength and support to stand up, be counted and help themselves – by working with their neurologist, PD nurse and GP.
