Parkinson’s Care Provides Relief to South Tampa Families
A Parkinson’s diagnosis is life-changing. In the first days of an aging loved one’s diagnosis, emotions often run high and feelings of fear emerge as families become concerned about what the future may hold. Because the impact of Parkinson’s is extensive and far reaching, families quickly find that they are unequipped to provide their loved one with the high level of care demanded by this degenerative disease.
That’s where we come in. At Home Care Assistance of South Tampa, we understand the complex needs of Parkinson’s patients and are proud to deliver quality home care that enables seniors with Parkinson’s to continue living safely in the comfort of home.
Our Parkinson’s Caregivers Go Beyond the Basics
Challenges such as tremors, immobility and balance are commonly reported by Parkinson’s patients. While Home Care Assistance caregivers are highly trained in how to meet the physical needs of seniors and can help with cooking, feeding, personal care, medication management, and physical therapy exercises, their experience and expertise in Parkinson’s care allows them to:
- Promote independence: Caregivers identify the senior’s current abilities and times of day when symptoms are mild to create a schedule that allows them to perform and enjoy as much of their regular routine as possible. This helps the senior regain a sense of control, combating feelings of despair, helplessness, and depression.
- Slow cognitive impairment: Home Care Assistance has developed an in-home program called Cognitive Therapeutics, which is designed to help prevent and delay cognitive impairment, which is often seen in the later stages of Parkinson’s. Caregivers utilize hundreds of interventions to help boost memory and critical thinking.
- Maximize safety and comfort: By performing routine home assessments, caregivers are able to identify and eliminate any problems that may pose a safety risk as the disease progresses. Caregivers are also required to take daily CareNotes, which prove valuable to the senior’s doctors and physical therapists, allowing them to adjust medications or treatment plans as new symptoms or challenges arise.
Our Parkinson’s Home Care Is Flexible for Evolving Care Needs
Effective care for seniors with Parkinson’s requires flexibility. Because Parkinson’s is a progressive disorder, symptoms change over time. At Home Care Assistance, we offer personalized care for seniors at any stage of the disease.
While some seniors might progress more quickly through the stages of the disease, others may maintain higher levels of agency for longer. Whatever the case may be for your loved one, you can count on Home Care Assistance to be there when you need it most.
Our services are available any time — day or night. We offer care on an hourly or round-the-clock basis, and we can make adjustments to your senior’s care schedule at any point. With this flexibility, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing we can accommodate your senior’s changing needs.
Our Expert Caregivers
We’ll match your senior with a caregiver experienced in Parkinson’s care. We also ensure this caregiver shares interests with your senior to ensure personal compatibility.
Each caregiver goes through a thorough pre-employment screening. This process includes a meticulous background check, reference checks, a physical exam, and a personality test to ensure all aspects of their candidacy are a perfect fit for the job. Upon hiring, they become fully bonded and insured.
