PCLA PROGRAMS & RESOURCES FOR PARKINSON’S
FIND Support Groups for Parkinson’s
Connect with other Los Angeles families living with Parkinson’s
Support groups offer an opportunity to meet others with Parkinson’s disease living with the same challenges you face daily. They offer an opportunity to hear health care professionals speak on related topics or share personal experiences. Not all support groups are the same, attending a support group can be intimidating but meeting others and their families living with PD can be life affirming and comforting. Dates and times of support groups often change. Contact the leaders for more information and to verify times before you attend.
In-person support groups are currently suspended. Tap the button below to see PCLA’s current calendar of virtual support groups and online events.

LOCAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
Mobility Equipment Gifting Program
PCLA recognizes the need members of our community may have for gently used mobility-assistive devices, and that these needs may arise suddenly. We are able to maintain an inventory of walkers, wheelchairs, canes, and other devices to gift as needed.
Equipment donations: We are currently accepting donations of walkers, wheelchairs, canes/quad canes, crutches, and knee scooters. We will provide a receipt for your donation.
To inquire about our current inventory or to ask about donating equipment, contact us:
People living with Parkinson’s anywhere in Los Angeles County are invited to apply for assistance. Only one person per household may apply per application period**.
Assistance will be provided based on a randomized drawing, as funds allow. All applicants will be contacted by email following the drawing.
**We are not currently accepting applications.
Our next application period will be announced by email. If you are not already on our email list, please sign up today to receive notifications of this and other programs.**
