Supporting families living in Lanzarote with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions

Support our mission

We are working to support families living with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions. We need your help to do so.

Providing help and support where there is none

Our mission: To provide empowering and transformative support to the families and caregivers when it is truly needed.

“None of us know what is around the corner. With 1 in 32 people affected these conditions will, most likely, touch someone we know.”

Supporting those living on Lanzarote with Parkinson’s and (importantly) also their caregivers.

Studies show that 1 in every 32 people will be affected by Parkinson’s and its debilitating conditions. Currently there is little or no support available on the island and Living With Parkinson’s wants to change that by raising awareness and much needed funds in order to offer…

Respite assistance

Sometime a break is all that’s needed. We aim to provide support for care-givers via short respite assistance.

Activities & Seminars

Knowledge is power. We hope to provide workshops covering topics such as nutrition, movement, relaxation techniques etc.


Support in the home can make the world of difference and we aim to provide families with helpful home aids.

Counselling/Medical Advice

Longer term, we hope to fund a specialist surgery with a Parkinson’s nurse to provide medical advice and support.
