Around 100 000 Quebecers are affected by Parkinson’s disease.
We estimate the average age of the appearance of the first symptoms to be around 64 years old. The number of cases increases with age, so Parkinson’s disease is estimated to reach 1% of the population aged 65 and over and 2% of the population aged 70 and over. (Source: Guide Info Parkinson).
To efficiently assist those living with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers, we are always looking for individuals and companies who share our values. Our ultimate goal is to improve the lives of all those affected by Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson Québec’s values are: collaboration, empathy, creativity, and transparency.
We work and innovate together to fulfill our mission and encourage people to share their opinion. We conduct our business in a manner that demonstrates respect for people with Parkinson’s disease. We conduct our activities rigorously and meticulously and we assume full responsibility for them.
