Local Support Groups

Presented by the Central Coast Parkinson Association
What is a Support Group?

A Support Group offers information through meetings, newsletters, emails, speakers, and printed material.
At meetings, we share the latest information and learn how others have coped so that we can make our lives better. At times we will have speakers or other informational meetings.
We provide information to the community through our webpage and Facebook page.
We encourage optimism and hope by providing social contacts and sharing experiences.
Our goal is to empower you to get better and stay better and provide support along your journey with Parkinson’s Disease.
People with Parkinson’s Disease, their Care Partners, friends, and health professionals are all welcome to attend any of our Support Group meetings.
Caregiver Support Groups

Parkinson Disease affects not only the person with the diagnosis, but their family, friends, and co-workers as well.
Caregivers have needs too!  We offer support groups for the care partners. Coast Caregiver Resource Center (through Cottage Rehab) provides a Caregiver Support Group every month.
