Move4Parkinson’s was established in November 2011 by Margaret Mullarney who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2004. Since her diagnosis, Margaret has discovered that there is a huge range of activities that People with Parkinson’s (PWP’s) can undertake to improve their quality of life. Margaret has also recognised the huge value which PWP’s place on being able to speak with other PWP’s and to hear stories of how others have overcome similar challenges. On her journey so far, Margaret has met many others who share her passion for improving the quality of life of those with Parkinson’s and to give those people a voice.
We have a vision of a world in which People with Parkinson’s (PwP’s) are empowered to achieve their best possible quality of life. With this in mind, Move4Parkinson’s provides information and support to PwP’s on how to improve quality of life through self-management.
Our services are centred around improving People with Parkinsons’ understanding of their illness and teaching them how active self-management can reduce symptoms and enable them to have a better quality of life. We also aim to serve the families and carers of People with Parkinson’s and build a community of support for everyone affected by Parkinson’s.
