FALLBROOK ‚Äď The North County Parkinsonís Support Group (NCPSG), a program of the Parkinsonís Association ' announced the formation of a social group for both Persons with Parkinsonís (PWPís) and their caregivers in the Fallbrook area.

"This small group provides opportunity for folks in the Parkinsonís community to socialize with others in a similar situation. Well-meaning family and friends try to understand what we are going through, but other people in the Parkinsonís community arenít trying to understand ‚Äď we do understand," said social chair Sam Cooper.

Fallbrook organizers Bob and Shirley Fender encourage anyone who is interested to contact them. "We socialize in a warm and caring setting. Our common thread (Parkinsonís) bonds us in many ways," Shirley noted. The social group meets on the fourth Friday of each month at 10 a.m. in different locations. Call the Fenderís at (760) 723-8887 for location and more information.

The NCPSG also offers a monthly meeting in Vista, at the Gloria McClellan Senior Center, on the second Wednesday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon. There is a monthly featured speaker followed by breakout groups to support one another as PWPís or as caregivers. In addition, social opportunities abound, including area small groups and annual events such as the Parkinsonís Associationís Fight Parkinsonís Step by Step 5K event, a July picnic, and a holiday luncheon. Interested persons should call Vista chair Paul Dawson at (760) 497-1200.

As Barbara Kirstein, NCPSG board president said, "No one has to be alone. Our group motto is ĎHope and Cure.í Come join us!"
