Who We Are

The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Society (PDMDS) is an all India registered charitable society founded in 2001 under the Society Registration Act of 1860. It was founded by renowned neurologist Padmashri Dr. Bhim Sen Singhal to provide ‘free-of-cost’ services and programs to People with Parkinson’s (PwP’s) and their caregivers and raise awareness about this neurological condition. PDMDS has developed and established an evidence-based “Multidisciplinary Model of Care” for PwP’s and their caregivers. This multidisciplinary model of care has been internationally recognized as an effective model of care for developing countries. An integral part of the model is the focus on self-management strategies for ‘Activities of Daily Living’ to improve independence and quality of life and reduce caregiver burden and stress. To extend our scope from rehabilitation to prevention, we have initiated a ‘Healthy Ageing’ program through which we reach out to senior citizens and those living at senior residential facilities. Through this program, we educate on neurological conditions prevalent in the elderly population, particularly Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Stroke. Currently, PDMDS provides its services through a network of over 70 community-based support centres and online programs across the country.
