Navigating Parkinson’s: A Support Group for Families
November 23rd | 10:30am - 12:00pm
Dealing with Parkinson’s disease isn’t easy. But it is helpful to share your concerns and personal experiences with others who completely understand what you are going through. Join The Cambridge Homes for a monthly support group and learn about proven strategies to help you better care for your family member. Light refreshments will be served.
The group will be facilitated by Noah Gabriel Press McIntyre, a professional coach and entrepreneur with more than 30 years experience studying mindfulness and gratitude. With both parents diagnosed with Parkinson’s, Noah has seen first-hand the invaluable comfort that support groups can provide to families dealing with this disease. Noah is passionate about providing healing and support for other families, which is why he’s made this group open to anyone in the community who’d like to attend.
