The Hagerstown Parkinson's Support Group strives to provide an understanding environment in which people with Parkinson symptoms or medication side effects, and their care partners, can come together to discuss common problems, learn coping strategies, and provide peer support and encouragement to one another. 

Some people may have difficulty coping with Parkinson's disease. It may be hard for them to ask their doctor questions or talk about their problems with family or friends. A support group may be just the right answer. Many patients have gained encouragement from meeting with others who have Parkinson's disease. The meetings provide an opportunity to discuss experiences and feelings and to share solutions to common problems.

It is our hope participants will gain a better understanding of our shared illness and will, as a result, be better able to manage its challenges.

"If we withdraw from one another, we are merely ducking reality.  Why not rather draw strength from each other?"

From the Book, "Shaking Hands with Mr. Parkinson"
by Gary Miller, (c) 2011
