During the first few stages of Parkinson’s disease, seniors mostly do not manifest any symptoms and are capable of looking after themselves. Unfortunately, as the disease progresses, they begin to experience difficulties with performing even the most basic, everyday tasks. In order to age independently and remain at home, they need professional care services. At Visiting Angels, we offer high-quality memory care to seniors living in Gaithersburg, MD, and surrounding areas.
With our Parkinson’s care services, your loved one will be able to stay safe and comfortable at home, despite their medical issues. We will create a personalized care plan tailored to their specific needs to ensure that the level of care they need is the level of care they receive. In addition, we will match your loved one with a caregiver who has the skills and experience to cater to their every need.
While symptoms of this condition are very subtle at the beginning, in time your loved one may begin to experience frequent and recurring tremors, a decline in mobility, balance issues, depression, sleeping disorder and delusions. Some older adults in advanced stages can even develop dementia.
Seniors with Parkinson’s often deal with mobility and balance issues, which is why they become prone to falls and injuries. Also, this condition can make everyday tasks difficult which is why your loved one will need professional home care services. With our Parkinson’s care services, your parent can age comfortably at home and remain independent for as long as possible.
Rest assured that our caregivers are trained to provide care to seniors with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory and cognitive-related illnesses. With Visiting Angels Gaithersburg, you will be at ease knowing that your parent is in good hands.
Our memory care providers can assist your loved one with various daily tasks such as meal preparation, bathing, dressing or grooming, toileting and incontinence, transferring and positioning, light housekeeping and more. They can also provide transportation to scheduled appointments.
Since Parkinson’s disease progresses in time, our care plans can be changed to suit your loved one’s evolving care needs.
