Parkinson’s is a life changing neurological condition, which progressively affects the brain. This can affect a person’s mobility, loss of memory and causes tremors in legs and hands amongst other things.
Parkinson’s can affect somebody’s relationship with their partner, family, friends and colleagues, as well as their own self-confidence. Putting the right care package in place can ensure those relationships are protected and the person living with this condition can continue to lead a comfortable and fulfilled life.
Parkinson’s care can support you through your journey, from first being diagnosed, to when things are being more difficult at home. Home instead can support with daily tasks such as household cleaning, laundry, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation or assistance with mobility and getting out into the community, to more specific support around complex health needs such as support with a catheteror a feeding tube.
Our Care Professionals are fully trained and assessed as competent in your specialist care needs to support you in the best way, often relieving pressure on family caregivers. Evidence suggests effective support helps reduce the number of possible complications and the need for hospital admissions. Care is carried out when you need it, not when it suits others, which allows you to get more time doing the things you love.
Having a Care Professional support you, the way you need, in your home has proven benefits to emotional and psychological health. Your Care Professional will often share the same passions and interests as you and so not only will your health needs be met you will find common ground to explore together.
A neurological condition like Parkinson’s is life changing, as more parts of the brain are impacted it can lead to a number of symptoms that can be difficult to deal with alone. This can include memory problems, tremors and loss of smell. Having Parkinson’s care at home can provide the necessary levels of support to maintain your daily routine and improve your quality of life.
In the early stages of your condition, it may be that only a small amount of assistance is required from our Parkinson’s carers, while in the later stages you may require longer periods of care. We will work with you and your clinical team from the earlier stages to the more advanced stages of Parkinson’s to ensure you are receiving the necessary levels of support.
At present there is no cure for Parkinson’s, but there are multiple therapies and treatments that will allow you to live with Parkinson’s on a day to day basis. Home Instead can work alongside your clinical team to ensure you are receiving any necessary treatment or therapy as part of your care.
Parkinson’s disease affects all sufferers differently, with varying combinations of symptoms between individuals. For the majority of people the condition will take years to reach a point where it has a serious impact on your daily life, with even mild symptoms taking years to show after a diagnosis. Whenever you feel you need assistance we are here to support you at every stage with Parkinson’s care in your home.
The symptoms of Parkinson’s often have a significant impact on your physical, mental and social abilities, which care at home can help to alleviate to ensure you live your best life.
