We want to help people with Parkinson's disease to live full and happy lives.
We wanted a support group that made us feel better, not worse.
We wanted hope and optimism and a place to learn how we could live that way, too.
So we started our own group: Shakers Anonymous.
At our evening meetings, you’ll find people of all ages, from 30-something to 80-something.
You’ll hear talks by doctors and researchers on promising new treatments.
Yes, you can share your struggles. But also share laughter, optimism, and hope.
A few years ago, we expanded Shakers Anonymous into Parkinson’s Body & Mind, to give people with Parkinson’s everything they need to live their best lives: medically, emotionally, and socially…body and mind.
exercise programs to improve symptoms and fight progression.
peer-led support groups for patients and caregivers (Shakers Anonymous).
wellness programs grounded in positive psychology.
