Thought for the Month

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

Welcome!

Comal County Parkinson Support Group (CCPSG) was founded in 2007. CCPSG, supported by the Lone Star Parkinson Society, LSPS. We speak to the needs of those impacted by Parkinson's disease in New Braunfels Texas and surrounding areas. Our mission is to offer educational and emotional support through local support groups, educational seminars and regional and national resource information. We realize that a diagnosis of Parkinson Disease can be over whelming and depressive. Please understand it is not something you have to face alone. People with PD, caregivers, families and friends who wish to broaden their knowledge of Parkinson's Disease are welcome. Come join us at our bi-monthly support group meetings with expert speakers, and an awesome community of people with Parkinson's, and those responsible for their care. On the 2nd & 4th Saturdays, at:

Oakwood Baptist Church, Adult Education Building, 2154 Loop 337, New Braunfels TX 78130.

The Crooked Path Blog

The Crooked Path is a blog written by Corey King, a CCPSG member and diagnosed with PD at the age of 47.  

What's Happening

As soon as group meetings are approved and safe in Texas to resume, each support group will decide when they will continue their monthly meetings. Meanwhile keep in touch with your group partners, a phone call, text, email or even a card sent through the USPS will be so welcomed. Just think how you would feel if someone reached out to you.

Follow all safety precautions, stay home as much as you can and wash your hands often.

Stay Safe until we meet again,

Elaine Bennett
