Parkinson Society Maritime Region

Parkinson Society Maritime Region (PSMR) is the voice of Maritimers living with Parkinson's. We are the only registered not-for-profit Parkinson's organization serving this population. Our mission is to "Ease the burden; Find a cure" through support services, education, advocacy and research.

The Society is comprised of four staff at the Halifax Regional Office, a part-time program coordinator in New Brunswick, and volunteers from across the Maritimes. We are governed by a Board of Directors.

How will a person benefit from volunteering with Parkinson Society Maritime Region?
Volunteering with Parkinson's Society can be very fulfilling. If you have a connection to the disease, you are usually exposed to people suffering from Parkinson's it feels good to help. With our organization it is tough, because a lot of our volunteers have Parkinson's. Volunteers tend to step down after several years with our organization due to their deterioration of Parkinson's.We are always looking to retain new volunteers to help spread the word about our organization and Parkinson's.

Yes.
