Parkinson’s Disease: Care and Support at Home

Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease that develops when dopamine producing nerve cells in the brain become damaged and die off. Decreasing levels of dopamine affect the body’s ability to move properly, and early signs of this disease are often related to inhibited movement. Tremors, stiffness, poor balance, speech difficulties and even confusion can be warning signals. Being a progressive disease, these and other associated symptoms may be mild at first; however, their intensity increases over time. While medications are available to help suppress some of these symptoms, there is currently no known cure.

While most cases of Parkinson’s are diagnosed in those sixty years of age and older, early onset can occur in individuals in early adulthood. No matter one’s age or stage, Aqua Home Care is here to offer our support. We are committed to referring in-home caregivers to individuals seeking quality support. We find caregivers who have experience caring for those with a variety of needs, including those affected by Parkinson’s disease. Facing this diagnosis affects not only one’s physical state, but their emotional and mental state as well. Feelings of fear, anger, depression and anxiety are common. A trusted caregiver provides compassionate, effective care to help make daily living as comfortable as possible by offering support with:

  • Bathing and grooming
  • Dressing/undressing
  • Personal hygiene
  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Using the facilities
  • Mobility assistance
  • Meal preparation and feeding
  • Housecleaning
  • Pet care
  • Transportation
  • Medication reminders
  • Companionship
  • And more

Those affected by Parkinson’s disease require care from medical professionals, loved ones and even caregivers for daily support. If you or someone you love is living with Parkinson’s, please do not hesitate to give us a call. Aqua Home Care is able to find the in-home care you need at every stage as we refer dedicated caregivers who truly care.
