As a specialist home care provider, we know just how life-changing living with Parkinson’s disease can be, and the affects it has not only on the individual, but everyone around them too.
With Bridgewater Home Care you can be confident that your loved one is in the best possible hands to help them live with, and adapt to, the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
We provide a loved one with the care and support as if they were part of our own family, tailoring the care to suit the individual’s needs and requirements. We are also there to support family members and friends who are also adapting to their loved one’s changes in symptoms and behaviours.
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s is a neuro-degenerative disease where parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years. It is the second most common neurological disease, after Alzheimer’s, and can require long-term care to help control the symptoms:
The three main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:
1) Involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body (tremors)
2) Slow movement
3) Stiff and inflexible muscles
As Parkinson’s progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to carry out usual, everyday tasks. Long-term care may also be needed to help reduce disruption to everyday life.
When living with Parkinson’s disease, various aspects of everyday life can be affected, such as reduced mobility which makes it difficult to move around the home. For those with a desire to continue life from the comfort of their own home, a Bridgewater Care Specialist can help to enhance quality of life and maintain their independence.
Our services are designed to keep your loved one happy at home, supporting them with the essential daily needs to keep them independent for as long as possible. For a full list of our services and how we can support your loved one, please see our Services page.
All our services are tailored specifically to the needs of the individual, and our aim is to support your loved one both physically and emotionally as their condition progresses and their needs change, ensuring they feel well supported, always.
