Wyoming Community

The Parkinson Association is proud to announce that the Cheyenne support group has been awarded a PCORI grant to study the 'Quality of Care for the Wyoming Parkinson's Community.' 

This grant will allow the Wyoming Parkinson's community to be connected through the use of technology and a dedicated person who will travel the state to learn how to further provide the rural communities with the care needed. Click here for more information on the PCORI grant. 

A support group network can help lift the burden of coping with Parkinson's disease by teaching patients, care partners and family members how to help themselves, while helping others. Currently the state of Wyoming has a limited amount of support groups around the state, but by having the ability to connect electronically a patient and a care partner have the ability to have the support and network that is needed to thrive with Parkinson's.

Support groups are for patients, family members and care partners to share with one another in a confidential setting. The Parkinson Association of the Rockies requests that service providers, students and product representatives refrain from attending and contacting these support groups. Please respect each group’s privacy and do not solicit by telephone or e-mail. We do not allow our support group information to be shared or sold.

Find the right support group for you

When first diagnosed, it is common to feel scared and alone. When you are ready to find support from people who understand what you are going through, joining a support group can be a rewarding experience.

The Parkinson Association's support group network helps to lift the burden of coping with Parkinson's disease by teaching patients and caregivers how to help themselves, while helping each other. We invite you to attend one of the 40 groups available throughout Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska.

If you plan to attend a new support group, please contact the Parkinson Association of the Rockies (303) 830-1839 for contacts for the leader of that group. We ask that you call the leader in advance so the leader can add you to their contact list for any emergency changes to their meeting time.
