Parkinson's Care in Peachtree City
Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects parts of the brain causing a variety of motor and non-motor symptoms. Because the disease is usually discovered in the later stages and is not currently curable, finding a Parkinson's care team can help improve the quality of life for those who are diagnosed with the disease. If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's, along with the care they receive from physicians and therapists, supportive Parkinson's care from an agency such as Visiting Angels® Fayetteville GA, can have a positive impact. Families in Peachtree City, Newnan, McDonough, Fayetteville, Stockbridge, Lovejoy, Tyrone, Senoia, Brooks, Sharpsburg, and the surrounding communities trust our agency to care for their loved ones.
