Home Care Providers & Adapting The Home For Parkinson’s Care

Jun 9, 2017 by Garrett Sullivan

If your loved one has Parkinson’s Disease, you may be looking for the proper home care providers to facilitate them and provide you with the peace of mind needed. The disease is progressive and symptoms may slowly develop and all set in at once or occur over time. The difficulties that your loved one experiences will increase, as the disease continues to progress. It can be very difficult to watch it happen, but the reality is that your loved one will need assistance, and the sooner you seek it out, the better.

One of the key steps in Parkinson’s care is to adapt the home to the needs of the patient and to see to it that the patient’s routine is made easier and they can receive the help they need.

Adapting the home takes place with the help of home care providers and is done so to eliminate problems or health concerns that may arise. For example, Parkinson’s Disease can cause the patient to need to use a walker, cane, or other assistive device, which needs to be able to be moved within the home easily. Some of the obstacles that need to be eliminated and removed from the patient’s home include:

  • Furniture that poses a risk
  • Standing lamps
  • Floor rugs and carpets
  • Home decorations, especially those on the floor

Our home care providers will work closely with you and your loved one to make sure these risks are eliminated from the home. We will address any areas of concern and provide a FREE fall risk assessment too.

In addition to setting up the home to be free from obstacles, our caregivers can assist with:

  • Mobility
  • Bathing and dressing
  • Cooking
  • Light housekeeping duties
  • And more

If your loved one has Parkinson’s Disease and you want to provide them with the best care possible, call Comfort Keepers today.
