SEAYOPD has had such great success since forming in 2018 that in 2022 we started a few subgroups to help with our growing memberships desires and originated in member ideas. All of the dates and time of each group event can be found on our UPCOMING EVENTS PAGE
Friends of SEAYOPD – Virtual
A virtual gathering on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 6:30-7:30 via Zoom hosted by Damion W. and Debbie H. Everyone that loves or cares for a person with Parkinsons is welcome to attend. We ask the PWP not to attend to give our loved ones a chance to talk openly with others in the same situation. To obtain a link to the sessions RSVPS should be made to Brain at SEAYOPD@gmail.com. These will take place regardless of RSVPs counts.
SEAYOPD Spouses Group – In Person
An in person gathering for spouses of a PWP. We ask the PWP not to attend to give our loved ones a chance to talk openly with others in the same situation. Meetings will occur on weekends at Madison Park Starbucks and hosted by Alison H. and Darlene F. Meeting dates will be set and posted on our events page. In an effort to respect our host’s time a minimum of 4 (+our 2 hosts) will be needed by Thursday at noon prior to the event date. RSVPS are REQUIRED and should be sent to Alison H. at Alison_Herber@hotmail.com.
Dx near 40
This group’s main focus is bringing together people that were diagnosed younger than most with YOPD. Typically, YOPD is considered anyone diagnosed under 50. As our membership has grown, we’ve found a group of people that have unique challenges of being near or under 40 and fighting Parkinsons. These gatherings are for the PWP and thier families. They are sometimes virtual and sometimes in person. RSVPs are not required, unless stated on the events page.
