About Us and Our Mission
Maine Parkinson Society (MEPS) is a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to improve the quality of life for an estimated 7,000 Maine people affected by Parkinson's Disease (PD). This is achieved through educational programs, by providing respite care services to health care workers and caregivers who work with people with PD, and by funding other programs that work to find the cure.
PD is a degenerative neurological disorder that affects 1 in 100 people over age 60. According to recent research, at least 1 million people in the U.S. and more than 5 million people worldwide have Parkinson's disease.
