Connecting those in need
Our mission is to offer programs that empower those with Parkinson’s Disease and their Care Partners to be proactive in managing their day-to-day lives, working to delay progression and committing to living well with Parkinson’s. Our shared experiences and triumphs drive everything we do, and strengthen our resolve to spread the message… “You may have Parkinson’s, but Parkinson’s does not have you.”

Good to know…
DASH provides rapid-response medical care to seniors in their own homes. By offering prompt medical attention to seniors who are too ill to wait for an office appointment or too weak to get there, DASH helps them avoid unnecessary hospital stays and trips to the emergency room. The program isn’t a replacement for a Primary Care Doctor — seniors who are enrolled in DASH continue to see their regular doctors and specialists for routine care, but they can call DASH for urgent problems. Call (805) 617-0049 or visit their website http://www.dashsb.com.
Thank YOU! We would like to thank all of you who have generously donated to PASB, which enables us to continue to offer classes, educational meetings and support to our Parkinson community.
Living With Parkinsons
This short documentary co-produced by Michael J. Fox provides a glimpse into the daily realties of living with Parkinson’s disease.
“Overcoming” is a short film from Anna Mayer Studios that looks at the incredible journey of perseverance and hope of a talented dog photographer. Barbara Breitsameter is an award winning dog photographer who’s career almost ended when she was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. She was determined to find a way to overcome her disease and still take wonderful dog photographs. The ability to Improvise, Adapt and Overcome is something I learned in the Marine Corps and I’m glad to see that Barbara learned it as well so she can continue to share her photos with the world.” To see more by Anna Mayer visit Little Studio Creative” where “Little Studio Creative” links to littlestudiocreative.com.
