Parkinson’s is a complex disease that affects each patient differently. Effectively caring for a Parkinson’s client often requires a multi-discipline approach including personal care, medication management, physical therapies and exercises.
From the beginning, we perform assessments which take into account the unique aspects of Parkinson’s and client’s symptoms that affect important care components such as:
- Movement – walking, balance, posture, transfers
- Cognition – memory and executive functioning capabilities
- Swallowing – understanding how to provide nutrition and hydration
- Secondary Symptoms – dealing with anxiety, depression, and sleep interruption
