Support Groups

These support groups are for people with Parkinson’s and/or their family and caregivers. A support group is a facilitated group of people who meet and discuss how to handle their disease and/or treatment. Many have monthly speakers who speak about topics such as nutrition, exercise, physical therapy, and voice therapy. This list is organized by city. If you are interested in starting a support group in your area, please contact (608) 229-7628 or Parkinson_assn@ssmhc.com.
