Get Support

The management of Parkinson’s should be tailored to the individual and includes keeping well and active.

Whoever and wherever you are, we can help. Our Parkinson’s Nurses offer a vital range of free services throughout New Zealand. These services range from home visits, exercise sessions, social and support groups, advice, advocacy and referrals. Our Parkinson's Nurses work as part of our unique and interdisciplinary care service.

First established over 35 years ago, Parkinson’s New Zealand is the only NZ organisation providing education, information and support services to people living with and affected by Parkinson’s and Parkinsonism conditions.

Parkinson’s NZ also runs networking support groups and exercise classes, while also offering physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, as well as art/music therapy sessions to members.
