Greenville Area Parkinson Society
The Greenville Area Parkinson Society’s (GAPS) goal is to educate and support individuals and their families living in the Upstate with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). We know first-hand that all individuals with PD and their families have unique experiences, and that the disease can differ greatly between individuals. Our focus is to facilitate the sharing of information to allow people living with Parkinson’s Disease to have the best quality of life possible.
Programs and Services
Our program and service offerings are based off of the idea of increasing a person with Parkinson’s quality of life by making sure they are educated about the best possible management of their disease. We offer programs for both the Senior and the Young Onset population. Whether it is talking to another person in your shoes, learning about the latest research, or getting involved in one of our exercise therapy groups, we hope to surround you with a system of support and education.
GAPS’s goal is to serve the estimated 5,000 people in the Upcountry of South Carolina with Parkinson’s Disease and their respective care partners but we can’t do it alone. You can help our organization by making a donation, getting involved in one of our fundraisers, or volunteering your time.
The Greenville Area Parkinson Society is a local 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity that relies on financial support from its individual donors, corporate sponsors, and fundraising efforts to support people and families affected by Parkinson’s in the Upstate of South Carolina.
All donations stay in the local community and support our programs and services we offer to over 5,000 plus people in the Upstate with Parkinson’s Disease.
