Know our background!
With effect from 18th February 2014, Parkinson's Disease Society (Singapore) has been renamed to Parkinson Society Singapore.
The Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 January 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).
Since then, the Society has organized a number of programmes including annual public forums, therapeutic exercise programmes and social and recreational activities, aimed at improving the lives of people with Parkinson. The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, about 6,000 to 8,000 people have Parkinson and related conditions and this number is expected to go up in a rapidly aging population.
