MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - NOVEMBER 2021Category: Message From The President
Here’s to those who inspire us and don’t even know it. Thank you for brightening our world. Let us continue to be kinder to one another. Thank you for being you.
With the season of giving and gratitude upon us, we express our gratitude to all that have helped us with the exponential growth presented to us through COVID-19. We’re all making the world a better place for people affected by Parkinson’s. Let’s celebrate Thanksgiving every day from now on.
November is National Family Caregivers Month, a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. It offers an opportunity to raise awareness of caregiving issues, educate communities, and increase support for caregivers. Know your Caregiver Bill Of Rights and print reminder cards at this link
When you call, please introduce yourself to our new Wellness Village Director, Daniel Coover, and our new IT Communications Director, Josh Nelson. We remain in need of a Support Group Coordinator and a Fund Development Director. If you know someone that lives in, or wants to live in, the Palm Springs area that loves the non-profit sector, and making a difference in the Parkinson’s community, with a team spirit, have them submit their cover letter and resumé.
Our Support Group Meetings are Zooming right along. With new COVID variants around, PRO will not be putting the PRO community of already compromised individuals at risk by resuming personal support group meetings. If you have participated in our support group meetings, please share your experience with someone you know, a friend, neighbor, or the friend of a relative. You never know how your invitation may impact another life and how priceless that connection might become. Take a look at the Calendar on the back page and note the meetings that are going on this month.
