Everyone living with Parkinson's disease faces a unique journey. That's why Visiting Angels® Evanston offers Parkinson's care programs uniquely designed to fit your loved one's needs. The Parkinson's Foundation defines the disease as a neurodegenerative brain disorder that will eventually require increased levels of day-to-day care to complete or perform everyday activities one normally done without assistance.

Your loved one wants to be independent and stay at home surrounded by the people and things they love. To maintain and sustain this independence, Visiting Angels Evanston offers flexible Parkinson's care programs to meet your needs. From part- to full-time care, our compassionate caregivers understand the need to be flexible, while being patient and understanding.

Evanston's Choice for Parkinson's Care

From assisted living to in-home care, you have many options when it comes to taking care of your loved one. Not sure what level of care you need? At Visiting Angels Evanston, we start with a free in-home assessment to learn more about your loved one's needs by asking questions, actively listening to your answers, and responding to any concerns or questions you may have. Some of the services often included in our Parkinson's care plans include:

  • Joyful companionship
  • Walking and mobility assistance
  • Light housekeeping
  • Meal prep and planning
  • Running errands and shopping
  • Help getting to doctor appointments
  • Respite care
  • Bathing, dressing, and grooming assistance
  • Flexible hours, weekend, and holiday availability

These are just a few of the services our caregivers can help with when you select a Parkinson's care program from Visiting Angels Evanston.

Each of our caregivers has been carefully vetted through a screening process that includes criminal history, background, and reference checks as well as previous employment verification. Once a caregiver has passed these careful checks, we put ourselves in the client's shoes and look for the kind of qualities we would want and expect for our own loved one. We would want a caregiver who is gentle, compassionate, kind, caring, dedicated, and truly enjoy spending one-on-one time with them. We know your loved one will look with trust to our caregiver for the comfort and care they so richly deserve. It's why we take such great care in selecting the caregivers for our team.
