Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder that leads to shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination. Parkinson’s symptoms usually begin gradually and get worse over time. As the disease progresses, people may have difficulty walking and talking.
Parkinson’s Disease support
To help support someone living with Parkinson’s disease we offer a package that provides carers with a good background knowledge of the variants of the condition such as Idiopathic Parkinson’s, the most common form, to those less well known such as Multiple System Atrophy.
Our specialist carers are trained to identify the signs and symptoms associated with Parkinson’s. This is key to creating and planning together how to help manage the many and varied everyday challenges and practicalities that could present themselves.
Being cared for at home with on hand assistance and support for problems encountered with mobility and swallowing, helps to reduce the anxiety and falls which can be typical to those living with Parkinson’s.
