Parkinson's Disease is a disorder of the central nervous system that involves primarily a degeneration of specific nerve cells deep in the area of the brain. These cells make the neurochemical dopamine. Dopamine is responsible for messages in the brain that control normal movement. When there is no dopamine, the end result is stiffness, and tremor and balance problems. Treatment varies from person to person and focuses on symptom management. Goals is this group include offering friendship, support, and encouragement to Parkinson's patients and caregivers; educational information; and providing a warm, supportive atmosphere.
