We encourage support for those affected by Parkinson’s disease through many different avenues because no single approach is right for everyone. Support groups stimulate valuable communication and togetherness with others who are just like you. These groups also provide a variety of opportunities for education and social interaction. Many support groups have featured speakers such as doctors, researchers, physical therapists, and speech therapists while others enjoy social events, recreational activities, or just plain old fun – together. The sections below describe support groups throughout Alabama. We encourage you you to reach out to these groups and find the one that’s right for you.
