The mission of the Central Bucks Parkinson’s Support Group is to engage, empower and provide emotional support to those of us who have Parkinson’s disease. We face PD coming from many backgrounds. We are people first, linked in a common bond, not defined by the disease, but by our daily triumphs to fight back and normalize our lives as best we can.
2019 is our Year of Renewal. Renewed effort to help you live a more fulfilling and enriched life by socializing with others living with PD and their care-partners. We are renewing our dedication to provide you with valuable resources and information in-person at our monthly meetings, and on-line on our new and evolving website.
Supported by Doylestown Health, Cornerstone Clubs and in cooperation with The Parkinson’s Council, it is our goal to provide you with information, events and programs that will inspire and inform everyone involved with our group.
In existence for more than 24 years, the Parkinson's support group has been more than capably lead by Mary Jane Barr-Silk. During her tenure, Mary Jane has grown the membership from a small group of ten to more than one hundred members today! Meeting attendance routinely averages over fifty as more people with PD and their partners learn about our meetings and programs. She has led the creation of a newly formed Advisory Board whose members are working on the continuation of the support group.
Mary Jane has earned her well-deserved retirement and we wish her well as she moves on to the next chapter of her very dedicated life. Thank you.
