According to Parkinson’s UK, every hour two people in the UK are diagnosed with the disease. It is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly, and living with it can be both emotionally and physically draining both for the sufferer and those close to them.
Parkinson’s affects everyone differently and the disease’s progression and impact varies greatly from person to person. While there is currently no cure, managing the symptoms of Parkinson’s can help sufferers to remain in the comfort of their own home.
Our team can help to develop a bespoke care plan designed to meet the needs of each individual. As the condition progresses, this will be tailored to help minimise the impact of the disease on the sufferer’s quality of life wherever possible.
This could include:
- Companionship care and cognitive stimulation such as reading or talking
- Assistance with medication
- Support with attendance at social events
- Help with exercises to strengthen muscles and increase mobility
- General support around the home, including assistance with housework, shopping or laundry
Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s shouldn’t mark the end of an individual’s life. We strongly believe that with the right level of support, sufferers should be able to continue enjoying life in the comfort and security of their own home.
