Home Instead partners with Parkinson’s UK

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with the national charity, Parkinson’s UK.

We are also pleased to be able to share our knowledge of the social care and difference home care can make and how people’s homes can provide a safe place for people living with a Parkinson’s diagnosis.

What is Parkinson’s?

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 and there’s no cure at the present time.

You can find more information on the condition as well as advice and support on the Parkinson’s UK website: www.parkinsons.org.uk.

Why is this partnership beneficial for those who have Parkinson’s?

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. 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.

Ghalib Ullah, Head of Commercial Partnerships at Parkinson’s UK, added: “We know that domiciliary care is preferable to many people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones and we hope that by supporting and enabling care staff to feel confident when it comes to understanding Parkinson’s we are also delaying the moment when individuals may need to move into a care home.”

How can Home Instead Wembley help?

Through the partnership, we have created a bespoke training programme about the condition. This allows us to train our CAREGivers so that they have the knowledge and skills to provide care that is tailored to the needs of someone living with Parkinson’s.

This ensures your loved one can receive the best, bespoke care whilst remaining independent at home.
