Welcome to the Flathead Valley Parkinson’s Support Group website. This site was created in an effort to reach out to people with Parkinson’s in Kalispell, the Flathead Valley and beyond. Along with educational information on Parkinson’s, we’ve included a Calendar of events with days and times of exercise activities, support group meetings and other items of interest, including upcoming events outside of our area. Please have a look around and feel free to Contact us if you have any questions, comments or suggestions email@example.com
Purpose of the Group. The group exists to provide support, information, sharing of experiences, struggles, strength, and hope as we make this journey together. Parkinson’s symptoms and treatment are unique to each individual and information shared may or may not work for you. Take what works and let the rest go. Family and friends who are part of the journey are welcome to attend the meetings. Being part of a support group is one of the best things you can do for your health.
