Parkinson’s disease is expensive; there are medication and physician co-pays, forced retirement, and other pricey accommodations. As new technologies emerge that can help people with Parkinson’s disease, cost may limit their widespread use.
Liftware — makers of a stabilizing handle that helps people with tremor from Parkinson’s, essential tremor or similar conditions — recognizes this limitation. The company has announced a “buy one, give one” match program. For each device purchased this week (December 1 through December 7), Liftware will gift a handle and soup spoon attachment to someone in financial need.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation has partnered with Liftware and the Melvin Weinstein Parkinson’s Foundation to manage this Uplift Program. Apply today.
In addition, Liftware has reduced the price of its handle and soup spoon attachment starter kit to $195 (a $100 discount) through December 31, 2015. Everyday spoon and fork attachments are also available.
