Support Groups

We strongly encourage people with Parkinson’s, family members, friends, care partners and everyone in the PD community to attend one of the many support groups offered. Support groups provide an opportunity for people to meet regularly for mutual support and to exchange coping skills with one another in matters relating to Parkinson’s.

Benefits of support groups:

  • Education
  • Acceptance
  • Empathy
  • Catharsis
  • Hope
  • Self-Esteem
  • Empowerment
  • Socialization
  • Respite
  • Growth
  • Belonging​
