Support Groups

Whether you were recently diagnosed, have been living with Parkinson's for years or are a caregiver for someone with Parkinson's, you may find it helpful to attend a support group. This can be a scary prospect, being in a room with other Parkinsonians or caregivers explaining your struggles we encourage you to give it a try. 

At this time Promises for Parkinson's is unable to offer support groups through our organization due to limited staff and funding.* However, we are pleased to work with other Parkinson's organizations to provide you with a list of support groups in the MD, DC and VA areas.  Please call or email the support group contact before attending to ensure that the group is still active and meeting at the times listed on these websites.
