For seniors with Parkinson’s, care must be specialized and personalized to manage symptoms such as tremors, loss of balance and muscle stiffness. As the disease progresses and minor difficulties with basic motor functioning evolve into an increased dependence on others when performing even the most basic tasks, professional Parkinson’s care can help to ensure the quality of life, independence and dignity for the senior. Home Care Assistance is a leading provider of Parkinson’s care in Tampa Bay, offering:
Parkinson’s affects individuals in very different ways and a patient’s abilities can vary drastically from day to day. Understanding when and how to assist, when to step back and supervise, and when to encourage independence requires a high level of skill and patience. All Home Care Assistance caregivers are industry experts in the area of Parkinson’s care, have previous industry experience, and participate in ongoing training through our Home Care Assistance University.
