Programs and Services
Our program and service offerings are based off of the idea of increasing a person with Parkinson’s quality of life by making sure they are educated about the best possible management of their disease. We offer programs for both the Senior and the Young Onset population. Whether it is talking to another person in your shoes, learning about the latest research, or getting involved in one of our exercise therapy groups, we hope to surround you with a system of support and education.
GAPS’s goal is to serve the estimated 5,000 people in the Upstate of South Carolina with Parkinson’s Disease and their respective care partners but we can’t do it alone. You can help our organization by making a donation, getting involved in one of our fundraisers, or volunteering your time. To find out more about volunteering, contact our volunteer coordinator Joyce Peck at email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Greenville Area Parkinson Society is a local 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity that relies on financial support from its individual donors, corporate sponsors, and fundraising efforts to support people and families affected by Parkinson’s in the Upstate of South Carolina.
All donations stay in the local community and support our programs and services we offer to over 5,000 plus people in the Upstate with Parkinson’s Disease.
