Bloomington Neurosupport Group

Websitehttps://www.equilibriumyogatherapy.com/neurosupport-groups
AddressBloomington, IN 47401
Description

Bloomington NeuroSupport Group

The Bloomington NeuroSupport Group meets monthly in Bloomington Indiana and is open to anyone with a diagnosed neurological condition such as multiple sclerosis (MS), ALS, early or late onset Parkinson's (PD), Huntington's— and a spouse or caregiver. All ages 18 and over are welcome. Support group location has easy parking and the building and meeting room are wheelchair / scooter accessible.

Rather than forming an MS support group, Parkinson's support group, ALS support group, or other specifically 'condition-based' group, we have listened to suggestions and requests for a group with a person-centric outlook, bringing people together with things in common, yet also providing for community engagement and that of caregivers and family— the sharing of experiences, ideas for problem solving, and learning through others.

All are welcome. Please come to support groups with an open mind and a flexible outlook on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
