As we reach out to North Idaho's Parkinson's community, we commit to increasing awareness and understanding of this disease by providing hope, education and connection with others who are traveling the same path.
Our Meetings and Classes
Coeur d'Alene Parkinson's Support Group
We will help you to find valuable resources such as webinars, movement disorder specialists in our area, and information on the newest medications and treatments. We have speakers from the medical community quite often. We also have a lending library of educational materials including books and CDs. Since we are all traveling on the same journey, we are here to provide compassionate understanding and methods of coping with this disease.
Caregivers' Support Group
This group is for the caregivers of people with Parkinson's. Often that is the husband or wife, but not always. You will receive emotional support and information and be able to share frustrations. This group meets occasionally during the CdA Parkinson's Support Group meeting, if there isn't a speaker.
Women with Parkinson's
Our mission is to provide moral support, encouragement, and information by sharing our experiences, thoughts and feelings. We offer unbiased acceptance, foster connectedness, and empower women to take control of this disease and live their best possible lives.
Music and Wellness
This is a great group for increasing the volume of your voice and helping with the clarity of your speech, also. This group is led by Carla Carnegie, MT-BC, NMT, BA, Music &Composition, BA, Music Therapy. She has many hours of working with people with Parkinson's. She is a lot of fun and brings rhythm instruments for all! No singing ability needed. Just come and share some enjoyable time with other people traveling down this path.
