About Us and Our Mission

 

Maine Parkinson Society (MEPS)'s mission is to help improve the quality of life for Maine people affected by Parkinson's Disease (PD) through educational programs, providing respite care services, and assisting PD support groups. 

What is Parkinson's Disease?

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. To learn more about the effects of Parkinson's here in Maine, we invite you to click the following link:   Easing the Burden - Parkinson's Disease
