Sharing your experience with others can help
There are support groups for people with Parkinson’s that can help you to better cope with the disease. The exchange of knowledge and experiences with other people living with the condition is usually perceived by patients as very positive and helpful. Attending a group can give you the opportunity to exchange information about doctors, treatments, clinics, physiotherapists, speech therapists, and much more.
You can contact a variety of helpful support organisations from the list below:
European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA)
The EPDA describe themselves as the leading voice for Parkinson’s in Europe, they provide information and resources to all Parkinson’s stakeholders, raise awareness of the disease’s complexities and impact, and advocate for policy change that benefits the Parkinson’s community.
