Facial Paralysis and Bell’s Palsy Support Groups

The Facial Paralysis and Bell’s Palsy Foundation sponsors support groups for those dealing with the physical, emotional and social effects of Bell’s palsy and long-term facial paralysis. We believe that connecting with others who are experiencing many of the same challenges and concerns is of great benefit.

We currently have support group meetings in the following locations:

  • Garden Grove, California
  • Beverly Hills, California
  • San Diego, California
  • Portland, Oregon vicinity

We also periodically sponsor online support group meetings, which are accessible from most computers and smartphones.

If you are interested in being added to our contact list for upcoming meetings, then please contact us at: facialparalysisfound@gmail.com

Upcoming Support Group Meetings

Join us for “Our Favorite Things,” a special holiday support group meeting, on Saturday Dec. 8th at 10:30 a.m.!Attendees are encouraged to bring along a favorite item that has been helpful to them on their facial paralysis journey to talk about with the group.

There will also be door prizes from some of our favorite items we have talked about in previous meetings, including a makeup bag and accessories from Beauty with Paralysis, a Sonicare oral care system, a photography sitting from Joy Orosky, gift cards and more!

Or course, we will take time for sharing and networking within the group, and there will be holiday treats and refreshments.

We will meet at 9401 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 650 in Beverly Hills (at the corner of Wilshire and Canon, in the 9401 Building).  There is public parking available in the garage beside the Montage Hotel, with the first two hours free. There is also paid parking underneath the building.
