The Israel Parkinson Association: Parkinson spoon project
Thousands of Parkinson's patients have difficulties even with the simplest tasks.
For the Parkinson awareness month, we generated an activity to raise awareness and emphasize the difficulties of the day to day life of Parkinson's patients. A special spoon with holes was created to show how difficult it is for them to manage even the simplest tasks. We contacted a well-known restaurant in Tel Aviv that was happy to join us in this project. Every diner got a bowl of soup with the special soup which was placed on a napkin with the message: "Thousands of Parkinson's patients have difficulties even with the simplest tasks".
