Financial Resources for Wisconsinites living with Parkinson’s disease

Living with PD can put significant strain on a family’s finances. To help ease this burden, APDA Wisconsin proudly offers a number of grant programs to offset costs associated with care.

To be eligible for our grant programs, the applicant must be a resident of Wisconsin, and be able to produce physician’s verification of their Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. (Additional criteria may apply for individual programs.)

A limited number of grants are available each year. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning in January of each calendar year. In order to serve those with the most need, we ask that applicants have a household income of less than $50,000 per year.

Caregiver Respite Program

Taking care of a loved one with Parkinson’s isn’t easy. Often there doesn’t seem to be time to get everything done and the challenge of Parkinson’s can add stress to your already busy days.

Taking care of yourself is crucial. The APDA Respite Care Program can provide up to $750 per calendar year for respite care services.

Recharge your batteries to stay healthy for you and your loved one.

Ride Repay Program

If you’re no longer able to drive because of your PD, our Ride Repay Program can help to get you where you need to go.

You decide which transportation method works best in your situation, so you can take a cab, ride the bus, put some gas in a caregiver/driver’s gas tank…the choice is yours. We will reimburse up to $300 per calendar year for transportation-related expenses.

Exercise Support Program

Exercise is crucial in maintaining quality of life and slowing symptom progression when you have PD. If the cost of exercise classes or a gym membership is keeping you from participating, we can help.

Our Exercise Support Program will reimburse up to $300 per calendar year for exercise-related expenses. This includes class fees, gym memberships or personal training sessions.

Check out our list of exercise classes throughout the state, and be sure to check with your doctor before beginning a new exercise program.
