Their mission is to offer help, hope, and a voice for persons living with brain injury and their families. Visit the BIANC website.
Falls and Brain Injury (handout)
Parkinson’s Foundation Carolinas makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) by improving care and advancing research towards a cure. They provide education, resources and programs throughout the state. Fall prevention is an important component of living with Parkinson’s. By talking to the healthcare team, exercising and making the home safer, a person with Parkinson’s can decrease his or her risk of falling and increase quality of life.
The Parkinson Association of the Carolinas (PAC) was formally recognized as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in 2002 with a mission “to serve as a resource for individuals and their families affected by Parkinson’s disease in the Carolinas, through education, community outreach, and direct support.”
