Asociación Parkinson Madrid
We are a private non-profit entity formed by more than 2,000 partners, 55 professionals and established in May 1994 to assist, guide, train and inform affected people, their families and / or caregivers, professionals and society in general about everything related to Parkinson's disease. On December 12, 2001, the Ministry of the Interior declared us of Public Utility, obtaining an important certificate that denotes quality, clarity and good work. Since 2015 we have the ISO 9001 quality certificate and we voluntarily submit to external audits.
We have two rehabilitation centers and the only day center specialized in Parkinson's in the Community of Madrid. We provide more than 35,000 therapies a year (physiotherapy, speech therapy, music therapy, occupational therapy, cognitive stimulation), as well as social and psychological care, with a comprehensive person-centered care model.
We are committed to the establishment and development of policies that integrate equal treatment and opportunities between women and men, without directly or indirectly discriminating on the basis of sex, as stated in the Guarantee document of the Management's Commitment to Equality of Opportunities between men and women.
We have participated in both national and European research, being partners in 5 European projects. The last of them ICT4Life, belonging to the H2020 program, ended in December 2018. We have experience in establishing the needs and requirements of end users (affected, caregivers and social health professionals), as well as in conducting pilots of different technological solutions that contributes to improving the quality of life of the affected people and their families.
