Orange County Parkinson's Disease Support Groups

Most Orange County support groups are transitioning back to in person meetings following the Covid 19 Pandemic.  Be sure to check with a group to find out their latest details before attending.

Parkinson's support group

Whether you are newly diagnosed with Parkinson's or have been living with PD for years, it helps to talk to others who are going through the same thing.  Not every group is right for every person. They may serve certain populations also (caregivers, young onset, religious affiliation) so we urge you to visit more than one group if you aren't feeling a comfortable match.  Most of Orange County's Parkinson's Disease support groups are not currently meeting in person due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There are several groups that are meeting virtually.  Please see our events page for current virtual meetings.

Before visiting any of the support groups below, it is advised that you verify the time and location with the contact. To find groups outside the Orange County area, check the Resource page on the Parkinson Movement Disorder Alliance site.
