Meetings & Contact Information
The Lower Shore Parkinson’s Support Group meets regularly on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
Meetings are held from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at MAC, Inc. (Salisbury-Wicomico Senior Services Center) located at 909 Progress Circle (off Snow Hill Road behind Holly Center) in Salisbury, MD 21804
Individuals suffering from Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers are invited and encouraged to attend these support group meetings. The typical agenda follows a "30/30/30" format:
Group business, announcements, important news items, etc. are covered during the first 30 minutes, including any subject matter that should be discussed by the entire membership.
In the second 30 minute period we break out into mixed smaller groups of six to eight for more intimate discussions and to provide mutual support.
For the last period we rearrange seating to form two groups, one for those with PD and the other for caregivers only. This setting provides a valuable and important opportunity for conversations about coping with Parikinson's disease among others who share a similar perspective.
Some meetings will include speakers on a variety of educational subjects such as exercise, nutrition, medications, coping techniques and developments in the research, treatment and management of Parkinson’s disease and it's symptoms. Typically these presentations will immediately follow an abbreviated business session, and whatever time remains after the presentation and any Q&A will be split between the two break out formats.
