Home Care for People with Parkinson’s
Parkinson’s disease is a disorder of the nervous system. Parkinson’s develops gradually, often starting with a barely noticeable tremor in one hand. But while a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson’s disease, the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. Effective Home Care for Parkinson’s can enhance comfort and independence
Home Care for Parkinson’s Disease
As with other neurological diseases, Parkinson’s disease can affect the entire family. Initially the caregiver for someone with Parkinson’s disease may be a spouse or other family member. Family caregivers can be vulnerable to fatigue, burnout, and stress, especially since Parkinson’s is sometimes associated with mood changes. Caregivers can feel “defeated” by the growing list of tasks that they are no longer able to manage and because they may feel like they never get a break.
