Social Work Office Hours

Consultation appointments with APDA social worker, Katie Freeman, MSW are available to anyone impacted by Parkinson’s disease. These 45-minute sessions are offered, either in-person or on Zoom, to consult with Katie on your personal journey with Parkinson’s Disease.

APDA Financial Hardship Fund

The APDA Northwest Chapter has a limited amount of funds available to assist people with Parkinson’s disease (PWP) who are experiencing financial hardship. This fund is intended to help improve PWP’s quality of life.  To be considered for an award, the applicant must have a diagnosis of PD/Parkinsonism; be experiencing financial difficulties; understand that this award is not intended as an ongoing support fund; complete a post-experience survey; reside in the community, not in a rehabilitation center, long-term care, or skilled nursing facility; and understand that the payment may take at least 30 days to process after the application is approved.  (A detailed list of the eligibility guidelines is on the application.)

Awards are made on a first-come basis and are subject to the approval of an application and the availability of funds. The fund is subject to change or discontinuation with limited notice.

If you have any questions or need assistance exploring additional community resources, contact the APDA Northwest Chapter at  206-695-2905 or apdanw@apdaparkinson.org for more information.
