Parkinson’s in the Light of Day: An Educational Forum for the Newly Diagnosed and their Families

Join us for a free educational forum for newly diagnosed individuals and their families. This event kicks-off a new Parkinson’s Foundation initiative to better identify and meet the needs of people newly diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (defined as within the last three years).

This event will provide the opportunity to connect with others in the Parkinson's community, hear expert speakers share tips and tools on how to best manage PD, and learn about available information and resources both nationally and in the New Jersey area. You will also be able to participate in Parkinson’s specific therapies and exercise, listen to live music from local musicians, and play a key role in this groundbreaking initiative.

Support Groups

We strongly encourage people with Parkinson’s, family members, friends, caregivers and other interested individuals to attend one of the many support groups offered in your community. Support groups provide an opportunity for people to meet regularly for mutual support,  to exchange resources, and share coping skills with one another in matters relating to Parkinson’s disease.

Benefits of support groups:

Wellness & Exercise

Staying active and involved is important for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Parkinson’s Foundation Florida can share information on  a variety of programs and services for both patients and caregivers which offer the opportunity for people to share experiences and gain knowledge from one another. Exercise is a critical part of a PD patient’s treatment since it helps with flexibility, posture and overall movement.
