Local and Regional South Australian Support Groups

The following listings provide further details on locations and contacts for support and education groups to connect yourself with. Please contact the relevant group leaders for further details on group content and up to date meeting dates.

Many people find that support groups help them cope with the day-to-day realities of living with Parkinson’s. The opportunity to swap stories and share resources can be truly therapeutic. Friends, family members and carers are welcome to attend.
