Parkinson's Support Groups Grow Nationwide
Date:4/13/2009

caregivers whose purpose is to share information and offer mutual support in a spirit of self-acceptance and education. Are you interested in starting a Parkinson's support group? You can visit www.parkinson.org and click on 'Free Publications' to download the Support Group Leaders Manual.

Depending on a support group's focus, participants may learn about coping and treatment from guest speakers and medical professionals, they may discuss their concerns and life issues, or participate in activities and relaxation techniques to help them cope with the disease. Some groups also provide activities and support for caregivers.

The diagnosis of a degenerative condition such as Parkinson's disease raises obvious fears, but local support groups can help those who are newly diagnosed, including help with decisions about when to stop working and how to provide for their families.

Allsup salutes the National Parkinson Foundation and other organizations across the country whose members are making a difference in the lives of people suffering from this brain disorder.
