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.
