Parkinson's Association SA
The Parkinson disease and other related movement disorders association of South Africa (PASA) is an organisation dedicated to help
patients with information and guidance when diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, Dystonia, Tourette's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Essential Tremor and other movement disorders.
We have over 40 support groups around the country and will visit them bringing new information at least once a year. We have a large group of consulting neurologists as well as medical partners giving us up-to-date information.
PASA has a membership base of 2000 however our reach is up to 5000 people. We do provide a paid membership of R150 per year and members enjoy our 4 editions a year newsletter, support groups, talks and consultations, this being the case we never turn a patient away whether they can afford our membership or not.
PASA relies on financial support from the Lotto and private sponsors for our expenses.
Parkinson's Disease (often referred to as Parkinsons) affects the part of the brain that is responsible for the control of movement.
Other symptoms that are not related to movement can also occur. These include sleep disturbances, depression, difficulties with speech or swallowing and memory loss. These usually occur later in the disease. Importantly, many of these symptoms can be improved by medications.
