Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s – skilled home care throughout all stages of this progressive disorder

For someone with Parkinson’s, medical intervention can offer a degree of relief. The home care services of Guardian Angel Carers can complement and facilitate this treatment. We ensure that home environments are comfortable and safe, providing help for patients and peace of mind for their families.

Helping you face challenges at home

The progressive nature of Parkinson’s disease means that the impact of this neurological condition changes over time. Also, different people experience the stages of Parkinson’s in different ways. No matter what you require from home care, our skilled CareAngels can assist. For example:

  • As physical symptoms worsen, minor problems with walking might develop into a worrying inability to maintain one’s balance. With our carers providing companionship, we’ll be there to assist.
  • Accomplishing simple tasks might feel overwhelming. Guardian Angel Carers are able to help with activities around the home.
  • Performing tasks with compassion, we provide sensitive encouragement and emotional support.
  • As Parkinson’s progresses, our CareAngels will stand by, ready to do what is necessary to ensure safety and comfort, at home.

Efficient home help for all challenges

Because of nerve damage, Parkinson’s primarily impacts movement, but it also has non-motor symptoms that affect the brain and body. This is why it’s known as a multisystem neurodegenerative disorder as well as a movement disorder.

However, many people with Parkinson’s learn successfully to live with the complications of both facets to the condition. Our trained CareAngels know how best to take care of both body and mind during this time.

Why does Parkinson’s often go undetected?

The early stages of Parkinson’s often manifest in mild symptoms such as slowing movement or muscle stiffness.

These symptoms can often be expected with general ageing. This explains why Parkinson’s can often be difficult to diagnose. In time, these early complaints can intensify, eventually becoming clearer symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

How do you diagnose Parkinson’s?

Certain motor symptoms characterise Parkinson’s, but doctors don’t precisely understand them. These symptoms include:

  • Tremors in the hands, arms, or legs
  • Muscle rigidity
  • Impaired balance
  • Loss of spontaneous movement

Therefore, in order to make a diagnosis, a GP will likely refer you to a neurologist, who specialises in the brain and nervous system, and/or a geriatrician.

Sometimes, the diagnosis process involves brain scans and a trial of medication.

Is there a cure for Parkinson’s?

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Parkinson’s or a clear way to slow or stop its progression. Nevertheless, many patients find a certain level of relief in the following:

  • Medication
  • Objects that assist in movement, such as a cane or a walker
  • Professionals like physical therapists

Making this part of your treatment plan can help you cope better and attain a certain quality of life. In addition, our CareAngels can work in tandem with your medical team to help reach certain goals and ensure as much comfort as possible, while at home.
