Maine Parkinson Society

The Maine Parkinson Society (MEPS) was founded on the idea of helping those with Parkinson’s Disease. Since MEPS was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.

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.

We support the people of Maine who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (PD), and their caregivers, in their efforts to improve quality of life through educational programs, providing resources and grants for respite care services, and assisting area PD support groups.

Parkinson’s disease affects an estimated 7,000 individuals in Maine. Help us in our commitment to improving the quality of life of those affected by PD by contributing to a great cause today.
