Parkinson’s In-Home Care Services

Specialized Support for Your Loved One with Parkinson’s: Home Care Services in Michigan

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder that affects the nervous system and the parts of the body controlled by the nerves. The first symptom may be a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand or difficulty remembering recent events. Confusion is common and can worsen in the evening hours. Additionally, many Parkinson’s patients exhibit hallucinations. As the disease progresses, your loved one may experience stiffness or slowing of movement. Parkinson’s disease can’t be cured; however, medications might significantly improve symptoms and in-home care will allow your loved one to remain in the safety of their home for as long as possible.

We understand the unique challenges faced by individuals living with Parkinson’s, and as a leading Home Care Service in Michigan, Affinity Senior Care specializes in Parkinson’s care. We can tailor the care plan to meet the specific needs of your loved ones in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

Can My Loved One Stay at Home?

When a loved one is diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, the family often chooses to care for them in their own home as long as possible. Seniors excel in a familiar environment and the comforts of their home may help them maintain their cognitive skills. However, keeping Parkinson’s patients at home becomes increasingly difficult as they exhibit both a cognitive and physical decline. Each day brings new challenges and trials, as unexpected behaviors and changes in their functional abilities can complicate both the person affected and their family.

With Parkinson’s care there is not a one-size fits-all solution. A personalized care plan helps with the senior’s routine, thereby preserving their independence and dignity.

Affinity Senior Care’s compassionate and professional care approach make us the preferred choice for families seeking specialized care for their loved ones.

Let us be a part of your loved one’s support system. For more information on our Parkinson’s specific care plan, speak with our care advisor today.
