Expert In-Home Parkinson’s Care Services for Seniors in Bethesda, MD and Surrounding Areas
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement. As it is a progressive condition that worsens as time goes by, affected individuals often require high levels of care as they are prevented to perform even routine, everyday tasks without assistance.
If your loved one is diagnosed with Parkinson’s, we are here to help. At Visiting Angels of Bethesda, our caregivers are trained and qualified to provide expert dementia care and Parkinson’s care in order to assist older adults with chronic conditions in Bethesda, Silver Spring, Aspen Hill and throughout North Prince George’s County and South and Eastern Montgomery County who continue to live independently at home.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
The symptoms of Parkinson’s are very subtle in the beginning, sometimes barely noticeable, and usually do not affect one’s quality of life in any way. Unfortunately, over time, the condition will severely affect your loved one’s dexterity, movement and mental functions.
A person with Parkinson’s can commonly experience the following symptoms:
- Mobility and balance issues, such as stiffness and gradual slowing of movement
- Frequent, uncontrolled shaking
- Issues that are not related to mobility but are caused by the condition, such as depression, anxiety, and sleeping disorders
- Lack of comprehension, sometimes accompanied by delusions

However, with a personalized Parkinson’s care plan in place, Mom or Dad can continue living safely and comfortably at home, regardless of the symptoms or stage of their condition.
