Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system associated with tremors and impaired movement. While symptoms of Parkinson’s are usually mild during the onset and the early stages, as the condition progresses, movement becomes so severely affected that those with the illness often require high levels of care as they are incapacitated to perform even basic, everyday tasks without difficulty.

If you act as a family caregiver for a senior loved one diagnosed with this disorder, you might want to consider working with experts from Visiting Angels Jonesboro.

With the help of our dedicated caregivers, your loved one can lead as happy and fulfilling a lifestyle as possible, managing their medical condition to the best of their abilities. We will create a personalized care plan based on your loved one’s symptoms and stage of progression and match your family with a professional memory care provider whose skills, qualifications, and personality make them an ideal fit for your parent.

Recognizing the Symptoms of Parkinson’s

The symptoms of Parkinson’s can be very subtle, almost unnoticeable at first, but as the condition advances, the patient’s mobility is gradually affected. Some of the most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include:

  • Recurring tremors
  • Slowed movement, often accompanied with mobility and balance issues
  • Depression
  • Insomnia and other sleeping disorders

To make matters worse, those in the advanced stages of Parkinson’s are at a high risk of developing dementia too.
