Inaugural Event Benefits the National Parkinson Foundation
Right at Home, Inc., a leading international provider of in-home companion and personal care to senior citizens and others, is a Hope Sponsor of the National Parkinson Foundation’s Moving Day, an event dedicated to raise funds and awareness for those who live with Parkinson’s disease.
With a festival atmosphere, Moving Day is designed to emphasize the significance of movement for those afflicted with Parkinson’s, a progressive neurological disorder often associated with tremors, slowness of movement or uncontrolled movement. The event will feature shorter, family friendly walk routes, food and music. In addition, each walk will feature a Movement Pavilion, which will include activities such as yoga, Tai Chi, dance and Pilates that are proven to help manage the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
“We are excited and honored to partner with the National Parkinson Foundation on this event,” said Allen Hager, Chairman and CEO of Right at Home, Inc. “Together, we hope to improve the quality of life for those who suffer from this debilitating disease.”
Approximately 1 million people in the U.S. are affected by Parkinson’s, and the number is expected to increase considerably in the next 20 years due to the aging of the country’s population. The National Parkinson Foundation is a leading organization focused on improving the quality of care for people with Parkinson’s through research, education and outreach.
Right at Home helped my family and I through the many stages of elderly care. From just needing an extra hand around the house all the way to 24 hours hospice care. They have been excellent in selecting the right people for the job. I've recommend them to others who in turn have appreciated the services they provide.
