We have interested in topics as political participation, care in old age, public policies to face sociodemographical change and participation and digitalization. We can provide a sample for the research (2100 members, aging people with Parkinson´s disease and their relatives, mostly of the cases, healthy aging people too)
Association Parkinson Madrid is a non profit organization that has been working in the care of people with Parkinson´s disease and their families since 1994 and with experience in European projects since 2001. At this moment we are involved in two H2020 projects regarding integrated care and an IMI project. We have previous experience on H2020 being partners in the project ICT4life (www.ict4life.eu). We are in direct touch with patients having a sample for any research: 2100 members (1800 parkinson´s patients) and direct contact with control groups (couple or relatives of the patients). Our activity is focused on the direct attention to those affected by the disease as well as to their relatives (healthy aging people) with more than 35.000 therapeutic sessions along the year (physiotherapy, speech therapy, music therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, cognitive stimulation, eye therapy) and social attention at home and in centre venue.
