Our Mission

The mission of Parkinson's Patients Support Groups, Inc. is to provide support and information to the Parkinson's community, including those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease or parkinsonism, and their caregivers, families and friends. 

PPSG is a non-profit, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization funded solely by donations and has been serving the community since 1981.  

PPSG activities supporting our mission include: 

o Providing assistance with the formation and maintenance of support groups for patients, caregivers, and families.

o Sharing Parkinson's disease-related information and resources through our newsletter, email bulletins, and website.  This includes:
  • background on Parkinson's disease, what it is, how to treat and manage it, and how to find neurologists specializing in movement disorders. 
  • announcements of local Parkinson's-related events and educational seminars, calendars of exercise and therapy classes, and listings of area support groups.
  • the latest news on PD research, treatments, clinical trials, and advocacy through links to major Parkinson's organizations on our website and in our newsletter. 
  • information for patients and caregivers.
o Creating community awareness of PPSG through attendance at local Parkinson's conferences, seminars, and events.
