The Richmond area support groups are dedicated to helping people with Parkinson’s Disease and their families. Our support groups provide ideas for coping, emotional comfort and access to additional resources. We are comprised of everyday individuals who are friendly, inspiring, amusing and knowledgeable. We are people living with PD or we are carepartners.
* We offer comradery with individuals experiencing the same problems, fear and uncertainty.
* We are a source for gathering information about PD; learning how to manage the effects of PD.
* We can help direct you to community resources, best type of therapy & clinical research.
Please visit us at any one or all of the meetings which are open to anyone in the community. Patients as well as families and friends can benefit from the talents and opportunities discovered through participation in a support group.
