Local Resources for People with Parkinson’s

Wisconsin exercise and support groups by region

Fitness classes – Exercise is not just recommended, it’s critical for people with Parkinson’s disease. As gyms, workshops and trainers make options available we post them here. These classes range from dance and yoga to rowing and boxing. There is something for everyone. APDA Wisconsin offers financial assistance to cover class fees via a voucher system.

Support groups – These support groups are for people with Parkinson’s, their family and caregivers. It is a facilitated group, who meet regularly to discuss how to handle their disease and treatment, and provide networking and community.

Caregiver support groups – Caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s disease can be very challenging, but also very rewarding. There are several resources that can help you along your journey. APDA Wisconsin sponsors many local support groups for caregivers throughout the state. Find one near you.
