In 1981, a group of people with Parkinson’s Disease and their neurologists formed a Denver-based support group to offer emotional and psychological support to newly-diagnosed Parkinson’s patients. Over the past 35 years, this one group has grown into 46 support groups, 42 weekly exercise classes, hundreds of in-home visits and resource calls, an extensive equipment loan program and a circulation of 7,000 newsletters.
