About IPF

Mission

Our mission is to improve the daily lives and well being of people with Parkinson’s disease. Our program, The Climb, provides a research-based exercise program and support system that is geared towards common symptoms and deficits of the disease. Join us as we help Hoosiers affected by Parkinson’s disease.

History

Indiana Parkinson Foundation (IPF) was formed in 2009, after a family received a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease. The man behind this diagnosis was Don Waterman, a farmer from Hamilton County, IN, a man in his early 50’s, and a man very loved and treasured by his family. The diagnosis of Parkinson’s left many questions and much confusion, feelings of fear and denial. But, after time, something emerged, and it was the desire to do “something”. What that “something” was supposed to be, was the question. It was determined that a foundation should be formed. Although the family members had no knowledge or expertise in this area, they found hope in knowing that they were being led forward by the Lord in their efforts. A song by John Waller was the inspiration behind the grassroots of the Indiana Parkinson Foundation. Read More
