Helpline: Parkinson's Support

Parkinson's Helpline

Parkinson's disease is a brain disorder that primarily affects a person's movement. Coping with or caring for a loved one with Parkinson's can be very challenging, but you are not alone. Parkinson's is common, affecting nearly 1 million Americans. Sharing your own experiences about managing or caring for a loved one with Parkinson's or learning more about other caregivers' experiences, the ExtendaTouch Parkinson's community will enable you to connect with actual people who experience the same daily challenges.

How can ExtendaTouch's Parkinson's support group help me?

ExtendaTouch is entirely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of a positive community. All types of people gather to share resources and opportunities that can help everyone live their best life while providing care for their loved ones.

Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah and I have worked in a nursing home in central Georgia for the last 9+ years. We have worked with many residents with Parkinson's and have received training on how to handle this sometimes tricky disease. If you have any questions or would like some assistance, please reach out and I would be happy to help in any way that I can. -Rebekah K.

I understand the disease, its progression, and care. I cared for a woman for 10 years from 83 to 93. I would be glad to share my information and support.

My mother had parkinson's disease. I was a huge caretaker of my mother. Shopping was very hard for her so that was the first task I was responsible to help her with.
