In Home Care for Parkinson’s Patients
In home care for those with Parkinson’s disease includes meeting all of the patient’s physical needs as well as helping with the often frustrating symptoms that come with the disease. We can refer caregivers who have the experience to help maximize the patient’s independence and improve their quality of life.
The caregivers who have the special experience in Parkinson’s in home care services can assist the patient with activities of daily living including assistance with bathing, toileting, safe transferring, ambulation, dressing and eating.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly in most people. What this means is that individuals with PD can live with PD for twenty years or more from the time of diagnosis. While Parkinson’s disease itself is not fatal, the Center for Disease Control rated complications from the disease as the 14th top cause of death in the United States. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s; however, your doctors will be focused and dedicated to finding treatments that help control the symptoms of PD so you can have a good quality of life.
Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease
The diagnosis of Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease is the same as Idiopathic, or typical, Parkinson’s disease except for the age of the patient. The average age of PD diagnosis is around 62. When an individual is diagnosed with PD before the age of 50, the disorder is called Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease.
