Empowering lives Enhancing care

With effect from 18th February 2014, Parkinson’s Disease Society (Singapore) has been renamed to Parkinson Society Singapore. The drop of the word “disease” was to eradicate the negative stigmatism of the condition and in keeping with the latest naming nomenclature for medical eponyms.

Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 December 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).

Since then, the Society has organised a number of programmes including annual public forums, therapeutic exercise programmes and social and recreational activities, aimed at improving the lives of Persons with Parkinson (PwP).

The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, three out of every 1000 individuals aged 50 years and above have Parkinson. The number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
