Parkinson Society British Columbia has a network of over 50 volunteer-led support groups throughout BC. We are currently recruiting a new facilitator for the Tri-Cities Carepartner Support Group. This group meets on the second Thursday of each month between 10:00am and 12:00pm at 750 Delestre Ave. in Coquitlam. The next meeting is on Thursday, October 13, 2016. 

If you are interested in becoming a support group leader or getting involved in any way, please contact Stacey Dawes, Information and Support Programs Manager, by email or by calling 1-800-668-3330. 

The benefits of belonging to a Support Group include:

  • Providing people with Parkinson's, their caregivers and families an opportunity to meet in a friendly, supportive setting.
  • Offering a place to share with others who are experiencing similar difficulties. There is comfort in knowing you are not alone in your struggle.
  • Access to a variety of local professionals with knowledge of Parkinson's and related healthcare concerns who may periodically come to meetings.
  • Exercise sessions (in certain groups only).
