LA Parkinson's Resources: PCLA Transportation Program

PCLA’s support groups offer an opportunity to meet others who understand that challenges you face daily. We have mixed groups as well as groups just for care partners, women with PD, men with PD, the young onset population, and more. Most of our groups are virtual, but our Sharing Our Strength group meets in person in Westwood once a month.

Stories from Living with Parkinson’s

A short documentary from Mediflix

There’s a lot of living left to do for people with Parkinson’s Disease. This film breaks down the important ON/OFF periods between when medications are most and least effective – through the lens of patients themselves. Every person with Parkinson’s is unique and every experience of an OFF period is just as personal. In this animated film, we hear from four patients, one caregiver, and one leading neurologist and movement disorder specialist about what people can do to stay more ON than OFF. 

Through these frank conversations in community with each other and importantly – with our doctors – people with Parkinson’s can get ON with life.
