Supporting Seniors Living with Parkinson's Disease

As a leading provider of home care services across the United States, Touching Hearts at Home is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for seniors in our communities. Today, we delve into a topic close to our hearts: supporting seniors living with Parkinson’s Disease.

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement and often presents challenges in daily living activities. With over 60 franchise locations nationwide, we understand the importance of providing tailored care and support to individuals and families impacted by Parkinson’s.

Understanding Parkinson’s Disease:
Parkinson’s Disease typically emerges in older adults over the age of 60. Common symptoms include tremors, stiffness, slow movement, and impaired balance. However, Parkinson’s can also manifest with non-motor symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and cognitive changes. At Touching Hearts at Home, we recognize the multifaceted nature of Parkinson’s Disease and the unique needs of each individual.

Our services for seniors living with Parkinson’s Disease are designed to promote independence, safety, and overall well-being. Here’s how we support our clients:

Personalized Care Plans: Each client receives a customized care plan tailored to their needs and preferences. Our caregivers are trained to assist with daily living activities.
Medication Management: Managing medications is crucial for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease to control symptoms and optimize quality of life. Our caregivers provide medication reminders and assistance with medication management under the guidance of healthcare professionals.
Mobility Assistance: Parkinson’s can lead to mobility challenges, making it difficult for seniors to move around safely. Our caregivers offer assistance with mobility exercises, transfers, and fall prevention strategies to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries.
