A valuable resource for people with Parkinson's, their families and caregivers

This month's meeting is a special request by our members to learn and share more about each other and our experiences. So June's topic is: The Parkinson's Journey: Who and How Are We?

And looking ahead, be sure to mark your calendars for next month's annual Potluck. The Annual Summer Potluck Dinner on July 27 is one of the most popular gatherings of the year. Riverside will provide chicken, drinks and paper products. All you have to do is show up with your favorite dish. Most importantly, the Potluck provides a great opportunity to spend some quality time with those who are also dealing with PD. Don't miss it!

Please join us for both events and come together with people who understand the challenges of managing PD as a patient, a family member or a caregiver.

Be sure to join us on Tuesday, May 24 to share your story, with all its achievements, challenges, hopes and frustrations with individuals who understand the challenges of managing MS. This month's discussion will focus on summer heat and travel tips for the upcoming vacation months.

You can share your story, with all its achievements, challenges, hopes and frustrations, and exchange information with people who live some of your experiences first-hand. The support group serves as a guide to services and resources and an update on what's new in treatment and research.
