The Reliable Parkinson’s Care Choice for Fort Myers Families
After a senior loved one receives a Parkinson’s diagnosis, the future may seem uncertain, and family members may not know who to turn to. Families are often concerned about three primary things: their loved one’s ability to continue aging in place independently, how his or her care needs might eventually change, and the available options for treatment. With the help of Home Care Assistance of Fort Myers, FL, your loved one can receive customized in-home Parkinson’s care designed to promote independence and boost overall health throughout all stages of the disease.
Compassionate Parkinson’s Caregivers Enhance Quality of Life
Though the most obvious Parkinson’s symptoms are associated with movement, including tremors, stiff muscles, and difficulty walking, the neurological nature of the condition can significantly affect behavior, mood, and cognitive functioning. Though it’s vital to assist seniors living with Parkinson’s with transfers, feeding, mobility, and grooming, the Parkinson’s caregivers at Home Care Assistance also provide:
- Companionship to lower the risk of isolation and depression
- Assistance with speech and occupational therapy
- Games and activities designed for mental stimulation
- Reliable transportation to medical appointments and social events
Respite & Relief for Overwhelmed Family Caregivers
Though our Parkinson’s home care is a wonderful boon to seniors, the services we offer are also invaluable to family members who provide at-home care. No matter how caring and devoted you are to helping your loved one, providing care for an older adult in the later stages of Parkinson’s disease comes with many challenges, and it may be even more difficult if you are also trying to fit in time to go to work and raise your own children. Home Care Assistance of Fort Myers provides respite care that allows you time to relax and recharge so you can remain healthy during the times you are caring for your loved one.
