Parkinsons Home Care Services
In-home care for a loved one with Parkinson's starts small but as the disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly, expect needs and home care to increase over time. Most symptoms can take years to develop, and one can live for years with the disease while requiring only minimal increases in home care support to maintain an independent lifestyle for a loved one so they can remain in their home.

- some only have symptoms on one side of the body for years, eventually, symptoms will also affect the other side
- physical, occupational and speech therapy can be a necessary part of keeping one's strength and abilities
