Parkinson’s is a serious degenerative brain condition that impedes motor skills, speech, and other functions. Caring for someone with Parkinson’s can be a full-time job that requires specialist knowledge, strength, patience and compassion. If you need support with Parkinson’s care in London, Harley Street Care can help.
Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s?
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, you may be anxious about the future. Parkinson’s is a serious degenerative brain condition that impedes motor skills, speech, and other functions. It creates rigidity of muscles and slows physical movement, meaning everyday tasks can become increasingly difficult or even impossible.
If you or a loved one is living with Parkinson’s, you may be faced with a difficult choice – do you remain at home and worry about your health and safety, or move into residential care and lose independence?
Thankfully, there is a third way.
At Harley Street Care we provide tailored support for Parkinson’s sufferers. The care we provide is based on a scale of need, which supports people across the spectrum of Parkinson’s progression. Whether you simply require regular check-ins for medication and meals, or are looking for a full-time, live-in carer, we can help you.
A guide to dealing with Parkinson’s
How Harley Street Care can help you with Parkinson’s
Why opt for care at home?
When it comes to managing Parkinson’s, routine is everything. For example irregular medication consumption can be hazardous for sufferers, upsetting the balance of the brain and causing unpredictable symptoms, such as:
- Inability to speak, move, eat or swallow
- Uncontrolled body movements
With Harley Street Care you will have a one-on-one relationship with an expert carer, in which your welfare will be their sole focus. This stability of care means that you are less likely to suffer with stress and the associated problems it can bring to Parkinson’s sufferers.
To make your life a little easier we can help with:
- Administering and supervising medication intake
- Cooking, housekeeping and general errands
- Supporting and supervising you in performing tasks which you find difficult
- Being on-hand to liaise with other professionals as necessary
- Providing a friendly face and a stable, consistent source of personal support
Ensuring your health and safety at home.
