Press Release: Fedelta Announces Partnership with Northwest Parkinson's Foundation
Living Well with Parkinson’s Disease is Possible
Fedelta Care Solutions and Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation Partner to Provide Family Caregiver Educational Booklets
SEATTLE, WA - Fedelta Care Solutions, along with the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation (NWPF), is pleased to announce a collaboration between their two organizations which aims to better support those affected by Parkinson’s. This collaboration offers complimentary educational booklets focusing on those individuals providing in home care.
Fedelta is a locally owned and operated elder care company that has been in the Puget Sound area for the last ten years. Steve Meyer, Founder and President of Fedelta stated, “We have been working for the past year to develop this holistic approach to in home caregiving. What came out of those work sessions is as series of educational booklets we have entitled, the Living Well Program. It includes educational booklets, currently available, for five chronic diseases: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, diabetes, and general chronic disease care.”
The booklets were written by Fedelta’s team of RN’s focusing on the family caregiver, making the approach both practical and meaningful. The information includes helpful education with check boxes to spur thought provoking family conversations. The holistic approach of this information focuses on four main areas to assess. They include: physical, environmental, purpose/ independence and social enrichment.
For staff at disease associations, education is a key component for supporting their members and families, which is why this partnership made so much sense to the team at Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation. “We’re thrilled to partner with Fedelta to create a substantive brochure aimed to improve quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s,” said NWPF Executive Director, Steve Wright.
As the only independent regional Parkinson’s organization serving the entire Northwest region, it was exciting to join forces with respected local care organization.
The booklets will be distributed throughout the area at NWPF community support group functions, by NWPF social workers who specialize in Parkinson’s care. This information can also be downloaded on the Fedelta website by clicking here.
