Home Instead partners with Parkinson's UK - April '21
We're so excited that Home Instead UK are now partnered with Parkinson's UK. Thanks to Parkinson's UK our CAREGivers will receive specialist training and will therefore be able to support people living with this neurological condition. Whilst at Home Instead we are pleased to be able to share our knowledge of the social care and home care sector with Parkinson’s UK, offering them a valuable insight into the difference care at home can make and how people’s homes can provide a safe place for people living with a Parkinson’s diagnosis.
As you may be already aware, Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world and it is estimated 1 in 37 people alive today will be diagnosed with Parkinson’s in their lifetime. However, there is still no cure, it gets worse over time, and with over 40 symptoms it is incredibly complex and unique to each individual. Around 145,000 people in the UK have Parkinson’s.
Speaking about working with Parkinson’s UK, our CEO, Martin Jones said: “We want people to be able to live their life well at home, where they feel most comfortable. This is absolutely possible for someone who is living with Parkinson’s.
“By sharing our sector expertise with Parkinson’s UK we hope that families will realise that they do have a choice when it comes to care and that quality home care can really make a difference to people’s lives.
