What Is A Support Group?

A support group is an informal gathering of people who share similar experiences, situations or problems. One of Parkinson’s NSW’s most valuable and popular services is the development and coordination of a network of more than 70 Parkinson’s support groups throughout metropolitan and regional NSW.

Parkinson’s support group members can offer each other emotional and practical support. 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 disease.

Support group meetings range from group discussions, to educational sessions by guest speakers, social outings or just sharing a cuppa. A Parkinson’s support group usually meets monthly.
