“Being able to meet people... to discuss this disease we have in common... it strengthens our bond.”
Parkinson Canada hosts local support groups in your community to provide mutual support from other people living with Parkinson’s Disease. Support groups offer a safe environment for talking about your experiences, enhancing your ability to cope with the daily challenges of Parkinson’s.
Some groups are subject specific (young onset, newly diagnosed and care partners as examples) while others are more general. All are designed to provide a safe, comfortable place for people to connect and share with each other on how to live well with Parkinson’s.
