Home Care for Parkinson’s Patients

A diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease brings a mix of disbelief, confusion and fear. No one really knows what causes the neurodegenerative brain disorder and its effect on muscle movement and control. No one has discovered a cure yet, but groups like the National Parkinson Foundation are helping advance breakthrough medications and treatments.

We’d all love to live without Parkinson’s disease, yet if you are one of the 1 million Americans with this chronic condition, we at Right at Home understand how daunting living well with Parkinson’s disease can be for both you and family caregivers. That is why we have skilled and compassionate home caregivers who help relieve the pain and stress of managing the unpredictable and common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Right at Home. Right at Home was originally hired just to help with medications for my 83-year-old father as he was alone in his home while his four daughters live in another state. As anyone that has an elderly loved one that lives out of state knows...it's hard to worry from afar. It was a great relief to know that Right at Home was checking on him and keeping in touch with us. The nurse was trustworthy, caring, kind and just fantastic in every way. Right at Home spent much time on the phone with us to help choose and get him into a rehab facility after he was sick last year, which I always felt was above and beyond. Just recently I was up visiting with my father because he had developed an infection. My dad refused to go to the hospital and the nurse from Right at Home stayed with us for an extra 4 hours or so until we could finally get the help my father desperately needed at the hospital. Again above and beyond. The Right at Home nurse was like an angel during this stressful time. Five stars is not enough to rate how much Right at Home helped us with our dad.
