Eurobodalla Parkinson’s NSW Support Group celebrates 30 years of friendship and community.

The Eurobodalla Parkinson’s Support Group celebrated 30 years of providing support, community, and friendship to people living with Parkinson’s disease in the Eurobodalla Shire.

Secretary for the Group and longest-serving member, Joy Overs said the group has grown since she joined eight years ago. “30 years is a long time for a group like this. To be able to support each other for that long and for people to continue to get something out of the group is amazing.”

The vibrant group gets together socially but also share information and builds connections friendship and camaraderie.

When asked what the Eurobodalla Parkinson’s Support Group has meant to her, Ms Overs had one word: “Survival”.

“Being able to relate to people who can understand what’s happening and the friendships I’ve built, have been wonderful. My family has also been marvellous – there are some people who have nobody to rely on outside of this group, which is something we don’t take lightly”.
