The Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Research and Education Foundation (PAREF) Is a 501(3)c not-for-profit charitable organization. Our mission is a direct look into who we are.
Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with cognitive function. Symptoms progress slowly but become severe enough to inhibit daily activity.
Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disorder of the brain that often develops slowly. As it progresses, a person loses the capacity to regulate movements and emotions.
