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. 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 disease.


Benefits of support groups:

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

*Groups may occasionally change the date and time of their meeting. Please use the contact information listed with the group to confirm they are meeting.*

If your support group isn't listed or you need to update your group's information, please contact Sally Levy at
