Parkinson's Foundation Launches: PD Solo Network

– 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET

What is the PD Solo Network: 

A virtual network for people living with Parkinson's disease (PD) who live alone, by choice or circumstance. The purpose of this group is to create a community of support for those living without a care partner. People living with PD are the experts about what challenges, changes and accommodations are needed on a daily basis. This network will provide a place to share ideas, concerns, brainstorm strategies, suggestions, resources & to build relationships.

The Parkinson's Foundation is providing the initial funding and support to kick start this network. It will most likely become a very strong network that will operate independently although the Parkinson's Foundation will always be an entity of support & information for the participants. The Foundation will provide resources to launch and maintain the network for a one-year period. 

To ensure a solid foundation the initial phase will be facilitated by Mary Berk, a long time Parkinson's support group leader who also happens to be a clinical social worker. Mary will guide the network's development during Phase One or the initial 8-week period. Phase Two will be managed completely by people with PD who live solo.

Phase One will be 8 consecutive weeks via Zoom and will continue to meet thereafter via Zoom at a frequency to be determined by the participants through February 2023.

Phase One- 2023
Wednesdays, February 1, 8, 15, 22

Meeting time- 1 p.m. ET - 2:30 p.m. ET and /or 7:30 p.m. ET - 9 p.m ET

This is a virtual program, taking place live, using the online Zoom platform. Instructions on joining the webinar are provided after registering.
