Connect with others who are living with Parkinson’s

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.

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.**
