Parkinson’s Care

Home Care for Those Living With Parkinson’s

Managing the progression of Parkinson’s disease can bring a mix of disbelief, confusion and fear. No one really knows what causes the neurodegenerative brain disorder and its effect on muscle movement and control. While there is not yet a cure, groups like the Parkinson’s Foundation are helping to advance breakthroughs in medications and treatments. Until there is a cure, we are here to help you every step of the way.

Right at Home’s Trained Care Experts Can Help

If you are one of the more than 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson’s or the 30 more diagnosed every day, you know that symptoms generally develop slowly over the years. Our goal is to be there for you as the disease progresses, providing as much or as little care as needed. Right at Home’s specialized home care teams know just how to work with muscle stiffness and tremors to help prevent frustration and falls. We also help individuals with Parkinson’s disease stand strong with these beneficial caregiving services:

Daily Mobility

Some people with Parkinson’s disease need extra help with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, eating and using the bathroom. Right at Home’s skilled caregivers are sensitive to the slowed pace the neuromuscular disorder presents, and respect privacy and the need for a normal routine.
