Holbrook Life Partners With Wilkins Parkinson Coalition To Bring Awareness To Parkinson’s Disease Research
Alpharetta, GA — Holbrook Life, a collection of innovative active adult, assisted living and memory care communities, is proud to announce a brand new partnership with Wilkin’s Parkinson Coalition. The goal of this partnership is to bring more awareness to all neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease. One of our very own residents, Bill Wilkins, who has lived with Parkinson’s for 15 years, says, “Education and awareness are mandatory ingredients in the journey to a cure.” To date, Wilkin’s Parkinson’s Foundation has been able to secure over $1 Million dollars in donations to raise awareness for Parkinson’s Disease.
That’s why Mr. Wilkins is leveraging his career expertise in marketing and his capacity for philanthropy 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 Mr. Wilkins has interacted with the Emory Neurology Movement Disorder department. For the month of April, in recognition of Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, the Holbrook Woodstock community staff are all wearing the stylized red tulip, with distinctive leaves shaped like the letters “P” and “D”, that is quickly becoming the nationally recognized symbol for Parkinson’s Disease awareness. The Parkinson’s Disease tulip has inspired a grassroots movement combining efforts and resources to help find a cure in our lifetimes.
At all of our Holbrook Life communities, we are dedicated to service, inspiration and living life to the fullest. Family, Passion and faithful service are the pillars of our philosophy. Well-Being is at the core of living life to the fullest. To that end, Holbrook Life has created amenities to support our residents, including a well-being center with a hydrotherapy pool. Physical therapists will work with patients in this hydrotherapy pool to achieve 60% weightlessness to help them regain lost motor skills. Among the benefits of hydrotherapy for neurological patients are improved balance and stability, better lumbar stabilization, improved gait and increased endurance, strength and range of motion. At Holbrook Life, we pride ourselves in having a full array of services to stimulate the mind, body and spirit.
Giving back to the community is a priority at Holbrook Life. We know partnering with organizations like Wilkins Parkinson’s Coalition will make a difference in finding a cure not only for Parkinson’s disease, but so many other neurological disorders affecting our own residents and those in our community.
