Support Groups

If you or a loved one experiences a neurological condition, you might find it helpful to talk with others who have walked in your shoes. Parkview professionals coordinate support groups to bring together individuals who share certain conditions or diagnoses.

Support groups typically meet monthly for the purpose of enriching the lives through:

  • Educational presentations by guest speakers
  • Social activities
  • Group discussions
  • Problem-solving to address some everyday challenges
