Parkinson’s WA Support Groups

What is a Parkinson’s Support Group?

Parkinson’s Support Group is a gathering of people whose lives are affected by Parkinson’s, who meet regularly in a relaxed, welcoming environment.

Getting together with other people who are facing similar challenges allows everyone to share feelings, resources and experiences. As well as providing benefits from the exchange of practical information, support groups also provide motivation and inspiration to help you deal positively with the changes to your lifestyle. They also give you a chance to meet new people, which helps to break down any feelings of isolation associated with the condition.

Each peer support group is unique in its membership and style. Most Parkinson’s groups meet once a month. Support group meetings range from group discussions, to educational sessions by guest speakers, social outings or just sharing a cuppa and a chat.

Who can attend a Parkinson’s Support Group?

Individuals from all walks of life who are impacted by Parkinson's, whether they are patients, caregivers, partners, friends, or family members, are warmly welcomed to attend.
