Welcome to the Bluegrass Parkinson's Alliance
Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, BPA
The Bluegrass Parkinson’s Alliance is the oldest organization of its kind in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Formerly the Lexington Area Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, BPA was created because in the 1960sand 1970s there were no support groups, little information readily available about Parkinson’s Disease and no resources for care partners.
Today the Bluegrass Parkinson’s Alliance works to fulfill its mission of creating a community of hope and encouragement by providing resources and support services to those affected by Parkinson’s Disease.
Bringing Resources to Community
We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide empowerment and encouragement for persons with Parkinson’s, their care partners and families in Lexington and surrounding areas. A well-rounded treatment plan includes a good amount of exercise and a reduction in stress to help persons with PD lead satisfying and productive lives for years after initial diagnosis.
