Supporting People Living With Parkinson Disease in Central and South Texas
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart” – Helen Keller Read
Welcome to the Lone Star Parkinson Society (LSPS) / Comal County Parkinson Support Group (CCPSG). We're a community of people with Parkinson's disease, families, care partners, loved ones, and supporters, all helping one another in our daily journey through life with PD.
If you're looking for information, a friendly voice, or a group that understands your concerns and challenges, we're here. You're welcome to join us at our bi-monthly support group meetings (on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays) in New Braunfels, Texas. Our meetings are held at the Oakwood Baptist Church, Adult Education Building, 2154 Loop 337, New Braunfels TX 78130. We welcome you to become a member of our website, or to just browse and look around. We do not charge any dues or fees for membership at our bi-monthly meetings or our website. We believe that a burden shared is a burden lightened, and we're glad you found us. We are here to "Help Ease the Burden" of Parkinson Disease for People with Parkinson's (PWP's), their families, and caregivers. We are also here for anyone interested in Parkinson Disease. Welcome to LSPS / CCPSG. We need YOU.
