Holbrook Life partners with the Wilkins Parkinson Coalition to raise awareness of Parkinson’s research
ALPHARETTA, Georgia., April 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Holbrook Life, a collection of innovative active communities for adults, assisted living and memory care providers, is proud to announce a brand new partnership with Wilkin’s Parkinson Coalition. The aim is to raise awareness of all neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease. One of our own residents, Bill wilkins, who has lived with Parkinson’s for 15 years, and he says, “Education and awareness are mandatory ingredients in the journey to treatment. To date, the Wilkin’s Parkinsons Foundation has been able to secure more than $ 1 million in donations to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease.
That’s why Mr. Wilkins is leveraging his career marketing expertise and philanthropic ability to create this partnership with Holbrook and Wilkins. In the past, he has successfully collaborated with the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the American Parkinson’s Disease Association and interacting with the Department of Movement Disorders in Neurology at Emory. For the month of April, in recognition of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, Holbrook Woodstock community staff all wear the stylized red tulip, with distinctive leaves shaped like “P” and “D” letters, it is emerging as the nationally recognized symbol of Parkinson’s awareness.
In all of our Holbrook Life communities, we are dedicated to service, inspiration and life to the fullest. Family, passion and faithful service are our pillars of philosophy. Well-being is at the heart of living life to the fullest. We have created equipment to support our residents, with a wellness center including hydrotherapy. Some of the benefits of hydrotherapy for neurological patients include improved balance and stability, lumbar stabilization, and increased endurance, strength and range of motion.
Giving back to the community is a priority at Holbrook Life. We know that partnering with organizations like Wilkins Parkinson’s Coalition will make a difference in finding a cure not only for Parkinson’s disease, but also for many other neurological conditions affecting our own residents and those in our community.
