Parkinson's Care for Seniors in McKinney, TX

Visiting Angels McKinney offers various home care options to seniors with Parkinson’s in Collin County, including McKinney, Allen, Plano, Frisco and surrounding areas

Parkinson’s disease is a disorder that affects movement and since there is no cure, it gradually progresses until even the simplest daily tasks become a challenge.  Although living with Parkinson’s is not easy, thanks to available in-home Parkinson’s care options, many seniors are able to continue living healthy, productive lives. If your loved one suffers from this disease, they will need high levels of care, provided by either a family caregiver or home care professionals.

At Visiting Angels, we provide in-home senior care services designed to help aging adults continue living independently at home, regardless of their condition. If your parent is diagnosed with Parkinson’s, our caregivers can tend to their specific needs in different stages of their condition. By working with us, you will give your parent the opportunity to live safely at home as they age.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s

Although the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are very subtle in the beginning, they get worse over time. As the disease progresses, your parent’s mobility and mental functioning will be affected.

Eventually, your loved one will experience:

  • Frequent, recurring tremors
  • Decline in mobility
  • Balance issues
  • Depression
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Lack of comprehension

Some seniors with advanced Parkinson’s develop dementia, which leads to frightening hallucinations.
