Support Groups

Find a Parkinson’s Support Group in Georgia Near You

One of the most important goals of the APDA Georgia Chapter is to bring vital support groups to areas near you.  Being a part of a  support group is an important step in maintaining an active and positive lifestyle.  If you are in an area that does not have a support group, contact us and we will help you get the support you need.   The APDA Georgia Chapter wants to be sure you receive the support you need especially during this time when we cannot attend our normal meetings in person.  We invite you to join us for a virtual meeting via ZOOM!  Click the meeting below to join at the scheduled date and time:

A NOTE TO PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS:   A support group is a safe place where families come to discuss sensitive, personal information.  Therefore we ask that professional organizations wishing to present to support groups, please contact The APDA Georgia Chapter, so that we may facilitate an introduction to the group leaders. Please contact the American Parkinson Disease Association Georgia Chapter for information.  Phone: 404-325-2020  Email: apdaga@apdaparkinson.org.  Thank you!

Speaker’s Bureau –  We value the educational information provided by professional organizations and we want to be sure that support group facilitators and participants are getting the most current information in a timely manner.  At APDA, we look forward to working closely with you to maximize the awareness of your products and services and to facilitate introductions and participation at events.  Please contact us for details.
