Elderly Care for Seniors with Parkinson's in Frankenmuth, MI and Surrounding Communities

Seniors in Frankenmuth, Saginaw, Bay City and surrounding areas in MI can get the help they need to manage Parkinson’s symptoms in their own home with elderly care services from Visiting Angels

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the nervous system causing stiffness that affects movement. While the symptoms of Parkinson’s are barely noticeable at first, older adults in the later stages of the disease experience difficulties with performing even simple, manual tasks. As the condition progresses over time, the majority of affected individuals require high levels of care and assistance, provided by either family members or home care professionals.

At Visiting Angels Frankenmuth, we provide expert in-home elderly care services designed to help senior loved ones continue living independently at home, regardless of the chronic, debilitating conditions they might be afflicted with. If your loved one is diagnosed with Parkinson’s, we can help, too. We can develop a personalized, non-medical care plan and provide your mom or dad with a skilled caregiver who can cater to their specific needs in various stages of their condition, allowing them to remain living safely at home as they age.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s

Once Parkinson’s disease is diagnosed, the symptoms may be very subtle in the beginning. However, as the condition gradually progresses, you can expect that your loved one’s mobility and mental functioning will be severely affected. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Frequent, recurring tremors
  • Slow but gradual decline in mobility
  • Balance issues
  • Depression and/or anxiety accompanied by a sleeping disorder
  • Lack of comprehension and/or delusions

Additionally, seniors with advanced Parkinson’s can develop dementia, which can interfere with reasoning and judgment and cause symptoms such as irritability, confusing and frightening hallucinations and getting lost during conversations.
