Home Care for Parkinson’s Disease
Your home care professional understands how to focus on the needs unique to someone living with Parkinson’s disease. We know there will be hard days where the shaking won’t stop. We can help you relax and make comfortable modifications to help with balance and coordination. We can take an interdisciplinary approach and act as a liaison between family members and care providers.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a complex, progressive and degenerative disease of the nervous system. Symptoms appear slowly and increase in frequency and severity over time. Symptoms include
- Muscle stiffness
- Slowness of movement
- Difficulty walking
As the disease advances, thinking can become difficult and behavior problems can arise. The chances of the onset of dementia increases in the later stages of disease progression.
How Blessings4Ever can help!
Our in-home care professionals are trained to provide the care that patients with Parkinson’s disease require. We know just how to work with muscle stiffness and tremors to prevent frustration and falls. It is normal that a patient may rely on family members at the beginning of the disease. However, as the disease advances, it can become increasingly difficult for both family members and the patient to cope. We can help provide:
- Exercise regimens
- Occupational therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Home safety evaluations
- Providing relief for family members and other caregivers
