The Challenges of Living with Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive condition that often begins with minor hand tremors and then advances into difficulty speaking and moving, amnesia, trouble swallowing, jaw stiffness, and other debilitating symptoms. Providing long-term care in the home setting that addresses the specific needs of clients affected by this condition can significantly enhance their quality of life.
Our trained caregivers can provide vital support to clients with Parkinson’s Disease in the following areas:
When Is It Time for In-Home Care for Parkinson’s Disease Clients?
Determining when it’s time for in-home care for Parkinson’s clients can be challenging. It’s essential to consider your loved one’s needs and safety. If you notice any of the following problems, it is likely time to seek professional assistance:
- Difficulty Completing Daily Tasks: One key indicator that in-home care may be necessary is when daily living activities become increasingly challenging. Parkinson’s Disease can lead to motor and cognitive impairments, making it difficult for clients to perform routine tasks like dressing, bathing, or cooking. When these activities become overwhelming and potentially unsafe, it’s a clear sign that in-home Parkinson’s Disease care should be explored.
- Compromised Safety: Falls and injuries are common for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease due to balance issues and motor control problems. If the person is at high risk of falls and injury, especially when no one is available to provide assistance or supervision, it’s time to consider hiring a caregiver for your Parkinson’s client. A trained home health aide can help prevent accidents and provide immediate support in case of emergencies, enhancing the client’s overall safety and well-being.
- Challenges in Maintaining Personal Health: As the disease advances, managing medications, adhering to a complex treatment plan, and attending medical appointments can become increasingly challenging. In-home care services for Parkinson’s clients can ensure that medications are administered on schedule and that the client can attend necessary medical appointments. Regular interaction with healthcare professionals, physical therapists, and occupational therapists can contribute to better symptom management and overall quality of life for the Parkinson’s client.
Ultimately, the decision of whether in-home care services are right for you and your loved one should be made in consultation with the client, your other family members, and your loved one’s healthcare providers. Our consultants can help ensure the best possible care and quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s Disease.
Options for In-Home Parkinson’s Disease Care
We offer various options for non-medical in-home care for Parkinson’s Disease. These options include:
