Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder of the brain, which affects muscle control and movement. Approximately one million Americans have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
As Parkinson’s disease progresses, it can be difficult to keep up with daily demands, including caring for a home as well as yourself. Independent Life Home Care recognizes the specific issues Parkinson’s patients face; our caregivers are trained to be able to address the disease-specific issues you face and work to make you as comfortable as possible. We’ll help you move safely about when you’re dealing with tremors and muscle stiffness, take the burden of household chores off your plate, and provide you with companionship as well as a listening ear when needed.
