Video Support Group Meetings

Many people find support groups help them deal with the challenges of having Parkinson's disease (PD) or being a care partner to someone with PD.  Joining a support group connects you with others in similar circumstances.  You can find a shoulder to cry on or get advice from people with experience.  But you can't always get to a support group.

Video Support Groups use videoconferencing for meetings.  Meetings are at a specific time on a regular schedule (weekly or monthly).  Meetings are facilitated by a social worker, nurse, or someone with education or experience specific to the topic being discussed in the group.  

The video support groups listed here are for people with Parkinson's disease as well as family and friends of people with PD.

Find online PD support groups for people with PD, family and friends on our online support groups page.
