Welcome to the Lincoln Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, an organization open to people with Parkinson’s Disease, their families, and their caregivers.
Participating in a support group is an excellent way to reduce the fear, isolation, and depression of coping with Parkinson’s Disease.
While friends may look away and stammer their excuses, associates may think they understand your dilemma but don’t, and the world may minimize or even ignore the struggle you are engaged in every day, members of a support group are different.
They have been there. They know things firsthand. They can help.
Some of the topics discussed in Parkinson’s Disease support groups include:
- Medications and side effects
- Home Safety
- Depression and Stress
- Research and Future Technology
- Sleep Problems
- Improving Coping Skills
- Caregiving and Strategies
- HMO’s and Physicians
- Balance and Falling
- Exercise Strategies
A support group can significantly improve one’s knowledge and understanding of Parkinson’s Disease. The support group atmosphere is dynamically caring, and is a place where, by design, all are accepted and encouraged to participate. In the United States, there are currently over 800 support groups related to Parkinson’s Disease.
