PARKINSON’S SUPPORT GROUP

Parkinson’s Support Group   Weatherford, Texas

Introduction and Mission

Janet  Standifer formed the Parkinson’s Support Group in Weatherford, Texas to increase awareness of Parkinson’s Disease through education, information, and support for the persons with Parkinson’s Disease and their families.

What is a Parkinson’s Support Group?

The Parkinson’s  Support group is a non-profit, voluntary group.   People who attend have in common a strong desire to learn more about Parkinson’s Disease and how to cope with day-day situations.

    *  The group shares and exchanges common experiences, situations and problems that are related to P.D.

    *  The group offers an opportunity to socialize and provide emotional and practical support.

    *  The group provides ways to learn and share information about topics of interests, resources and experiences.

Who Would Benefit?

Anyone interested in learning more about Parkinson’s Disease would benefit from attending the group meetings. We welcome those that would like to learn more about Parkinson’s disease , whether you are a friend, family member and/or someone living with Parkinson’s Disease.
