Parkinson Support Group
Parkinson’s disease is a life changing illness that affects many aspects of the person’s life. Some changes such as tremors and rigidity have observable qualities; however, other changes can only be described by the person with Parkinson’s disease. Support groups let you the patient, know that you are not alone and can provide you with an opportunity to share with others any information on individual experiences that you have. Members will also listen to what you have to say. Support groups can help you and your caregivers mentally and physically with group exercises, sharing of personal experiences and social meetings.
The Stroke Club was jointly set up by the Singapore National Stroke Association (SNSA) and the Singapore General Hospital. A stroke club is a place where stroke survivors and their caregivers can share their experiences with one another.
