Long-Term Parkinson’s Care for Seniors in Jenkintown, PA

Seniors with Parkinson’s symptoms in Jenkintown, Ambler, Abington, Philadelphia, Horsham, Hatboro and surrounding areas in Eastern Montgomery County, PA can receive long-term care in their own home from Visiting Angels

Seniors who are in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease barely show any symptoms. However, as the illness progresses, even the simple, daily tasks become a challenge. If your loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, our caregivers can help them continue living independently at home. At Visiting Angels Jenkintown, we offer Parkinson’s care services designed to help seniors age in place, regardless of the chronic conditions they might be afflicted with. We can develop a personalized, non-medical care plan for your loved one and cater to their specific needs in the comfort of their home.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s

The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are very subtle in the beginning. However, as the condition gradually progresses, it causes mobility and mental functioning issues. Some of the symptoms your loved one may experience are:

  • Frequent, recurring tremors
  • Gradual decline in mobility
  • Balance issues
  • Depression accompanied by a sleeping disorder
  • Lack of comprehension

In addition, in advanced stages seniors can develop dementia which leads to irritability, as well as confusing and frightening hallucinations.
