Welcome to the Parkinson Association of Santa Barbara
We offer programs that empower those with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners to be
pro-active in managing their day-to-day lives, working to delay progression, and committing to living well with Parkinson’s. Our shared experiences and triumphs drive everything we do, and strengthen our resolve to spread the message, “You may have Parkinson’s, but Parkinson’s doesn't have you."
We do not have a physical location for PASB. Most of our activities are held at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. Please send mail to: PASB, PO Box 6254, SB, CA 93160-6254
Dear Parkinson Community,
Out of an abundance of caution with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, and
given the current state of public health recommendations and social-distancing precautions, PASB has decided it is in the best interest of our PD Families to temporarily suspend all in-person meetings and classes until further notice.
However, we are now offering the following meetings weekly on ZOOM:
Grief Support Group Meeting Tuesdays at 11 am
Caregivers Support Group Meeting Tuesdays at 2:30 pm
Early Onset Support Group Meetings 3rd Sundays at 3 pm
Move to Connect Exercise classes Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 pm
For information on how to join any of these meetings, please email

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive, debilitating neurological movement disorder. Many in our community deal with this disease every day, as it challenges their quality of life and affects their entire families.
We are a non-profit, not affiliated with any national organization and have no building or office. We completely rely on donations to support our Parkinson's community and to help our families live better with Parkinson's Disease. Your donation is tax deductible.
Thank you for your support!
