A great place to share the challenges of living with Parkinson’s disease, and to learn strategies to cope.
The aim of this group is to enhance knowledge on specific topics related to Parkinson’s disease and to provide opportunities to talk with each other, ask questions to occasional guest speakers, and share resources. The group’s goal is to create a network in the community where people affected by Parkinson’s Disease feel supported and encouraged. The group aims to facilitate personal growth, empowerment, and increased knowledge and understanding of the disease.
The Parkinson’s support group was created in response to an identified need in the community for individuals and their caregivers who live with Parkinson’s Disease. The group works in partnership with the Parkinson’s Society of Southwestern Ontario.
