About Parkinson’s Disease

Support is Essential

Support is essential in the journey of coping with a neurodegenerative disease. Engaging with others navigating a similar process is vital to gain understanding that you are not alone in your situation. We encourage everyone to join a local support group or an online support group to:

  • Identify healthcare, home care, therapy, and other resources available in your community,
  • Find out about research and clinical trials in your area,
  • Gain education about disease symptoms and treatment.

Groups

Following are resources to help you find online support, webinar-based support, or face-to-face support near you for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, PSP, MSA, LBD, and other neurodegenerative disorders.
