APDA Florida Support Groups

Support Groups by County

Support groups are at no cost to you and are open to people with Parkinson’s disease (PWP), including their spouses, family members and care partners.  Each group is run differently.  It is suggested you reach out to the contact before attending a group. We are working tirelessly to develop Support Groups in every area of the state, if you do not see one available in your county call (954) 952-0429 for more information on available resources.
