At this time, the board of directors at Parkinson Social Network (PSN), out of an abundance of caution, has decided to suspend all in person support events due to the COVID-19 /Coronavirus pandemic.

What is a café?
Our café is an informal social alternative to support groups for people with Parkinson’s, their carepartners and caregivers, as well as their families and friends. We have different topics every month to help get the conversation started.
Why come to a café?
Parkinson’s brings us together, but it is not all that we have in common. At our café, you’ll meet people with similar interests, hobbies, and work and travel experiences, so there is always lots to talk about and share. You’ll learn that there is more to life than Parkinson’s!
Parkinson Social Network is different from many other Parkinson’s organizations because our focus is less on the medical perspective and more about encouraging our friends touched by Parkinson’s to enjoy a feeling of well-being. We hope that our café will inspire people to make the most of life with Parkinson’s.
