Brain injury is not an event or an outcome. It is the start of a misdiagnosed, misunderstood, under-funded neurological disease.
Through our nationwide system of Chapters and Information & Referral (I&R) Centers, APDA uniquely delivers education, support, and patient services to Americans with Parkinson’s and their families each day.
We offer peer-or professionally led groups for caregivers, individuals living with Alzheimer's and others dealing with the disease. All support groups are facilitated by trained individuals. Many locations offer specialized groups for children, individuals with younger-onset and early-stage Alzheimer's, adult caregivers and others with specific needs.
FTD is a complex disease. Upon a loved one’s diagnosis, care partners face emotional and practical challenges that can be overwhelming and isolating. Support groups provide a resource, an outlet, and a place to collect and share your thoughts with others who understand.
Building connections with others who can relate to the journey with PSP, CBD or MSA can offer immense support – through validation and normalization of your experiences and through practical advice. CurePSP is proud to partner with patients, families, healthcare professionals, researchers, and volunteers to offer empowerment and hope to our community.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or as it is more commonly known in the U.S., Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a disease that affects all of the major physiological systems in the body. It is typically chronic, lasting years, sometimes decades, and is often preceded by an infection that resembles the flu. Support groups are invaluable resources for patients and caregivers. There is nothing like sharing an experience to help mitigate some of the isolation a chronic illness causes.
