As the population ages, the number of people affected by Parkinson’s is continuously on the rise. After Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the United States. While it is a complex condition that can impact many aspects of day-to-day life, our compassionate caregivers are here to provide daily assistance and help alleviate these challenges.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease that can manifest in the following ways:
- Cognitive impairment
- Mood disorders
- Balance problems
- Muscle stiffness
- Short steps and slowed movement (bradykinesia)
- Speech and writing changes
These symptoms can make daily tasks difficult and frustrating. While there is no known cure for Parkinson’s, taking steps to manage the disease can improve a senior’s quality of life and help reduce the impact of their symptoms. It is important for those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s to discuss management strategies with a healthcare professional. A doctor can recommend a variety of medications and therapies that are available.
