FIRST OF ITS KIND RESOURCE DIRECTORY FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY PARKINSON’S - THE WELLNESS VILLAGECategory: Newsworthy Notes
PALM DESERT – PRO (ParkinsonsResource.org) holds a unique, first of its kind, vetted, virtual, video-driven Resource Directory for people throughout the world affected by Parkinson’s disease. Set to aggressively initiate a global outreach this September, The Wellness Village, on the PRO website, will provide connections to professionals and relevant products to aid the Parkinson’s world with the greatest quality of life possible as they go through the progressive journey of Parkinson’s disease.
Believed to be the first Resource Program of its kind in the world, along with education of their need or usage, The Wellness Village introduces professionals and products to a desperate-for-information community that may not know where to get them, or that they even existed.
“When a person is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or a Parkinsonism, their medical doctor rarely, if at all, lets them know what to expect with their diagnosis,” says Jo Rosen, President & Founder of Parkinson’s Resource Organization. “The patient, or their family member(s) start looking for resources, and that’s where Parkinson’s Resource Organization comes in.”
“We look for professionals and products that PWPs (People with Parkinson’s) told us worked for them, or that the professional or product distributor informed us works for this community,” Rosen continues. “When we find them we vet them to the best of our ability to make certain they are legitimate, licensed, responsible and reflective of our very high standards. Only after this process are they published in the Wellness Village on the PRO website. http://ParkinsonsResource.org/the-wellness-village
