Wisconsin Parkinson’s support groups

Attending a support group is a great way to connect with others, build community and learn.

These support groups are for people with Parkinson’s and/or their family and caregivers. A support group is a facilitated group of people who meet and discuss how to handle their disease and/or treatment. Many have monthly speakers who speak about topics such as nutrition, exercise, physical therapy, and voice therapy.

Each support group has a different format. There can be guest speakers or exercise demonstrations and some cover specific topics or are for a particular group – like caregivers, Lewy Body caregivers, or those with young onset PD. All support groups are free of charge. They are a lifeline for people living with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers, spouses, family and other loved ones.

Here is a list of support groups in alphabetical order by the city where they are located to help you find one near you.
