What is the Parkinson’s Support Group?
The Parkinson’s Support Group is a support group designed to help anyone who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and their families. As a part of the group, you have the opportunity to share your experiences with others who have faced the same or similar problems or to listen to an expert in the field discuss the latest in treatment options.

What does the group do together?
As with any life-changing event, you can often find comfort and hope by joining others who can understand your personal experience. The problems of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease are vast and can be better met with the support of others. As a group, we try to find ways to heal our lives after being changed by this disease. The group is also designed to include family members in the healing process.

Where can I find more information about the support group?
You can learn more about our group by contacting Beth Hartoon at (419) 523-5391 or 419-226-9019 or you can just come to our group to see what it is like. There is no cost and you can participate as much as you would like. We look forward to meeting you.
