Parkinson's Care in Murrieta, CA and Riverside County
Parkinson's disease is a chronic disorder that progressively affects movement. From shaking hands to walking, Parkinson's can gradually rob people of the ability for specific movements. When a loved one is diagnosed with Parkinson's, it is normal to be worried and have questions. The most common questions are:
When will more symptoms occur?
How quickly will they escalate?
How will this impact independence and quality of life?
When searching for these answers, you can trust the professionals at Visiting Angels Murrieta. We are a team of care professionals that have specialized in Parkinson's care services. We work to keep clients living at home for as long as possible.
Parkinson's is a degenerative neurological disease; it progresses slowly, meaning that the onset symptoms typically happen slowly over a long period.
But how do you know if you have Parkinson's disease? There are many symptoms of Parkinson's disease to look for, including slowness of movement, especially with walking or communication difficulties. Many patients will also experience changes in facial expression or muscle stiffness.
In most cases, patients live for 10-20 years after their initial diagnosis, which usually happens around 60. These patients will begin with symptoms slowly appearing and advancing as time goes off. The most common symptoms are tremors and shaking, as well as slowness and stiffness known as Bradykinesia. Other symptoms include trouble with balance, falls due to postural instability, confusion, and fatigue. These symptoms can be best treated with Parkinson's care services.
