Success is about progression, not perfection.
Even if the progress is slow, you'll get there.......just KEEP MOVING FORWARD!

PJ Parkinson's Support Group of Blount County is a self-help group for those living with Parkinson's disease and caregivers.  Our self-help groups are informal, self-managed, and organized by persons with Parkinson's and their care partner.


Our community is a place to give and receive practical and emotional support for people with Parkinson's disease and their care partner.

We gather to discuss concerns and share mutual experiences on all aspects of Parkinson's disease.  TOGETHER we are raising awareness of Parkinson's disease.
