Your link to local resources


The Parkinson’s Support Group of Humboldt County welcomes you.  Most individuals that reach this page have probably been newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and are searching for information and/or resources.  That is why this page was designed early 2021 to let you know there are programs available in Humboldt County.  The Parkinson’s Support Group started about February 1995 and we are now reaching out thru the Internet.   

More and more of the current research coming available shows that exercise is a critical element to an effective Parkinson’s Disease management program.  The links listed on the Resources tab provide a partial list of resources available in Humboldt County.

What’s Happening Currently?

Exercise has been shown to be one of the most important aspects to slow down the progression of PD.  Locally, there are classes for Rock Steady Boxing, PWR! Neuro-movement and Chair Yoga.  All are currently taught via Zoom.  Guest presentations are also given periodically via Zoom. Click here for local services and more information.

Currently there are two interest groups that are actively meeting.  Both meetings are held via Zoom.  One meeting is designed for individuals with Parkinson’s and the second is for caregivers.  

With Covid-19 the Parkinson Support Group is unable to meet in-person.  Prior to the pandemic, the Parkinson’s Support Groups met the second Friday of each month from 3:00 to 4:00 at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Eureka.  The hope is to be able to return to the in-person meetings as the pandemic allows.  See the Contact tab for specific contact information.
