Support groups & events

The Capital Area Parkinson’s Society hosts a number of monthly and special events including support groups, social engagements, and member appreciation events. Please see our calendar below for our upcoming events!

People with Parkinson's Support Group

People with Parkinson’s and their care partners need emotional support.  Facilitated by social workers, two groups run simultaneously for people with Parkinsons and care partners to meet separately.  This group strives to meet the need for connection, shared experiences, and coping skills only those traveling this same health journey can understand.
