Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a degenerative neurological disorder with symptoms such as tremors, muscle rigidity, slowness in movement and postural instability. Sharing in your loved one's journey with PD means integrating the diagnosis into your lives, adapting your routine and supporting your loved one as the disease progresses, which essentially requires you to establish a care partnership. From learning about the disease to learning about how it is affecting your loved one on a daily basis, establishing this partnership can be a challenging process.
Let ComForCare Palm Beach become an integral care partner for you and your loved one. Our caregivers can facilitate services designed to lighten the responsibilities. For example, they can conduct care visits in which caregivers assist in everyday chores around the house.
ComForCare Home Care Palm Beach spoke with Rebecca Hahessy, program director for the South Florida Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association to provide insight into the disease and practical information that is helpful for any loved ones with Parkinson’s. Listen to the podcast here:
