Parkinson’s Disease Care

Description

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects the parts of the brain that control movement. This results in tremors, stiffness, and slowness, while difficulty walking and loss of balance typically emerge as the disease progresses. Some people may also develop dementia as their disease progresses into the later stages, often resulting in significant memory loss and difficulty concentrating, thinking, completing routine activities, and navigating the environment. Behavioural problems are also common including depression, hallucinations and delusions. Our Parkinson’s caregivers are ready to provide the care your loved ones with Parkinson’s disease need to live safely and comfortably at home. We understand the main symptoms of Parkinson’s and can help them with anything from activities of daily living (ADLs) and moving around the house to meal preparation and medication reminders. The presence of our caregivers in the home of your loved one with Parkinson’s disease will provide you and your family with peace of mind.

Our Parkinson’s disease care services include:

Personal care and assistance

We can help those with Parkinson’s with their personal care activities including personal hygiene, dressing, toileting other activities that may be difficult for them to handle.

Medication reminders

Those in the later stages of Parkinson’s may forget to take their medications. We will make sure they take the proper dosage of their medication at the right time.

Mobility assistance

Our caregivers can help your loved ones move throughout their home and get in and out of their bed, recliner, or wheelchair.

Companionship

Our caregivers will provide your loved ones with companionship as well as excellent care. We will get to know your loved ones on a personal level and engage with them in their favourite activities.

Transportation and Errands:

We can provide rides for seniors who do not drive to help them get to doctor appointments and other important events. We can also help with errands such as grocery shopping.

Overnight Care

If you don’t want your loved one to be left alone at night, we can have a caregiver come to their home in the evening and stay throughout the night to provide assistance and respond to emergencies.
