Parkison's Support Groups
 

Support Group networks are a major vehicle for disseminating information and making resources available to assist people with Parkinson's disease and their caregivers. Group meetings help persons with PD, caregivers and families to foster self-empowerment and coping skills in a non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere.

We provide information on PD support groups, caregiver (care partner) groups and young onset PD groups throughout the State of Florida. Many of these groups provide physical, occupational or speech exercises and opportunities to socialize with other members.

Support Group day and time may change periodically. For current updates on South Florida Support Groups and Exercise call the APDA Information and Referral Center at 1-800-825-2732.
