Parkinsons Home Care Services
In-home care for a parent or loved one with Parkinson's typically start small, but symptoms can take years to develop so home care needs usually increase over time. Some people live for years with the disease while requiring only minimal in-home care support to maintain a safe and independent lifestyle in their home.
Parkinson’s symptoms can be related to movement (motor symptoms) or unrelated to movement (non-motor symptoms). Each person will experience symptoms differently. Symptoms often include:
- tremors or problems with balance
- symptoms on one side of the body but eventually both
- physical, occupational and speech therapy needs
- temporary and involuntary inability to move
- strict medication regimes
