Caregiver support groups

Caregiver support groups

Caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s disease can be very challenging, but also very rewarding. There are times when you “need a little help from a friend” along your journey, and we want you reach out when you need us. The support groups listed below are ready to help family members and caregivers of people with Parkinson’s here in Wisconsin.

Please note: Support groups change periodically. Before attending a support group for the first time, please get in touch the person listed as the contact. We do our best to keep this list current, but appreciate it when people volunteer updates to this web page.
