LATEST HAPS NEWS
Houston Area Parkinson Society hosted the 8th Caregiver Conference on Saturday, November 14th. This special, full-day educational event is designed exclusively for those caring for individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The conference offered participants helpful, practical information that is important to understanding and managing care of someone with PD. Caregivers had the opportunity to learn new skills and discover resources that focused on the care of their loved one as well as self-care. This year's program was held virtually as part of our ongoing initiative to keep our community safe amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and will be archived on our YouTube channel at a later date.
TIMES ARE UNCERTAIN. OUR COMMITMENT IS NOT. For 46 years, Houston Area Parkinson Society has been the go-to resource for individuals and families living with Parkinson’s disease in our community. Our mission has been to ensure that no one faces Parkinson’s alone and we have been unrelenting in our efforts to accomplish this goal.
We need your help now more than ever to help HAPS continue to stay focused on this mission by participating as an underwriter of this year’s Eat, Drink, and Be Charitable, part event, part fun-at-home, and all fundraising for a critical purpose.
