In short, Parkinson’s disease care is a specialised variation of condition-led care that is optimised for patient’s suffering from the multitude of side-effects caused by Parkinson’s. These can range from requiring help with movement around the home, to providing some much-needed companionship throughout the day.
As the condition’s impact fluctuates, the level of care will adjust accordingly. This allows a good quality of life to be retained with specific needs adhered to.
Here are some aspects that are covered with Parkinson’s disease care:
• Administering medication
• Cooking food and planning meals
• Cleaning and tidying
• Personal Care Encouraging mobility
• Going out into the community. For example; for a pub lunch or to the cinema
As its name suggests, Parkinson’s Disease Care is primarily intended to be used for patients who have received a recent or late diagnosis of Parkinson’s.
While there is no known cure for the disease, its symptoms can be managed and sustained in order to provide patients with a much better outlook on life.
Those who are approaching the final years of their lives may mostly benefit from palliative care for Parkinson’s disease.
