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.


Need Help?

One on one support is just a phone call away, whether you are a person newly diagnosed, someone who has had the disease for years, or are a care partner who is looking for answers of what to do next.

Physical Health Resources

Neurologists and Movement Disorder Specialists all agree, exercise and physical activity is imperative for Parkinson’s Patients.

Each month, the Bluegrass Parkinson’s Alliance hosts support group Discussion Meetings.
