Past Moving Day Events
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.
I am particularly impressed with the comeraderie and compassion shown to Mom by [caregiver] and other Right at home caregivers. It is so valued since there are so few in her life that are able to take the time and show the interest. Invaluable! Thank you!
