Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition with symptoms worsening over time. The main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease relate to an individual’s movement; there can be trembling, rigidity and slowness of movement.  Additional symptoms can include a loss of facial expression, speech problems and understandably, depression and anxiety. This anxiety is shared by the close friends and family who are coming to terms with the consequences of finding that someone they know and love has a life changing condition.

By providing personal and nursing care that is specifically tailored to the needs of the client, Care in Hand can help relieve this anxiety. Our provision of care is based on the following principles:-

We recognise that not everyone with Parkinson’s will have the same symptoms and neither will these symptoms progress in a consistent manner. Consequently, our personal and nursing care services are specifically tailored to meet your requirements and are responsive to your changing needs.

We appreciate that one of the main concerns for someone with Parkinson’s can be remembering and managing what can become a complicated medication regime. Our carers will ensure that the right medication is taken at the right time.We all value our independence and the comforts of our own home.

Our care services are there to help you maintain your independence and sustain your familiar lifestyle and activities.

Our carers are there for you. They will listen to your concerns and encourage and support you when you are having a difficult day. They will also come to appreciate and understand how your condition is changing and this experience will form an important part of all reviews of your care.
