Nurse Specialists

The Parkinson’s Nurse Specialists team covers the Metropolitan area and the South West, making home visits and assisting patients with management of the condition.

This innovative service, the first of its kind in Australia, is funded by the Department of Health WA and charitable trusts with no charge to clients. This community based nursing service, established in 1998, has been so successful that Parkinson’s WA has on many occasions presented this model as world’s best practice at conferences and workshops in Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Washington (USA), Vienna (Austria), Durban (South Africa) and Glasgow (Scotland).

Members have access to professional advice through a Professional Advisory Panel. A Counsellor and Respite Coordinator are available through affiliation with the Neurological Council of Western Australia.

“As a carer, I found the service particularly supportive when Tony was recently hospitalised although the admission was not related to Parkinson’s.” Ruth

“We receive a wider range of information and news updates and developments from the Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist than from any other health service. This helps considerably in making choices for the on-going management of Parkinson’s. It is very reassuring.”
– Stewart
"The Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist Service is an excellent service. I was advised on the pros and cons of the various therapies. They were positive and reassuring to talk to and is always supportive and caring.” 

“The Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist Service is an essential service that needs to be continued. They provide good emotional support, updated knowledge in a holistic sense.” 


“The nurses have so much knowledge, so much guidance to offer. They are so perceptive and always have time for me. I hope that others like me have the opportunity to receive such guidance.”
- Jean

“We had more information from our Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist than we have ever received from any health services. We would recommend them to anyone with Parkinson’s. Our friend who has had PD for 12 years told us that the best way to live and know your PD is through a Parkinson’s Nurse. She is right, this is a fabulous service!”
