Parkinson's Disease Support Group

Parkinson's Disease Support Group

Parkinson’s Support Group of Les Cheneaux
What is a Support Group?
A group of people, often strangers, dealing with Parkinson’s disease. We meet from time to time to discuss our problems, solutions, methods of coping, and just to get to know others dealing with the same problems.
What will a meeting be like?
We’ll introduce ourselves and briefly describe our place in the Les Cheneaux community, our illness, and our tools for success in dealing with the day to day problems that arise. From time to time we may introduce other materials such as books, pamphlets and internet resources. We may discuss specific issues or general things. Sometimes we might do something fun if the group wants to do so. Games and social activities like eating together could be planned if members wish to participate.
Who should participate?
Anyone dealing with Parkinson’s disease including the patient, care partners and families, and anyone interested in learning more about Parkinson’s.
There is no charge to participate
All discussions are confidential
You may join or leave the group at any time as your needs dictate
The group will be led by Peggy and Bruce Amrine, summer residents on Marquette Island. They have been dealing with Peggy’s Parkinson’s for over 12 years and have been active in leadership of the Ann Arbor support group for most of that time and we will also utilize the resources of the Michigan Parkinson Foundation. Please note that we are NOT doctors or medical professionals.
