Long-Term Parkinson’s Care for Seniors in Leesburg, VA and Surrounding Areas
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson's, you're not alone. The brain's dopamine-producing cells are damaged by the illness and cannot supply enough dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps relay signals to make movements. This leads to a tremor in the hands and feet of patients with Parkinson's. Medications may help relieve some of these symptoms, but they will not stop them from returning on their own.
Fortunately, there are ways to keep your loved ones at home while still giving them the best care possible.
