Parkinson's Disease Home Care Services London

There is no cure for the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. However, with appropriate treatment, home care, support and advice, the symptoms of Parkinson's disease can be managed well. 

Appropriate treatments for this disease may include medication to improve the brain's dopamine levels, speech therapy, and physiotherapy. Changes to a person's lifestyle will also help to limit the effects of Parkinson's disease on their life. These changes include regular exercise, a balanced diet and hydration. 

Here at Companions Home Care, our goal is to help you or your loved one live a fulfilling and meaningful life no matter the severity of their condition. 

Our team of professional carers will conduct a comprehensive assessment of you or your loved one's needs and goals, and together we will create a personal care plan. 

This plan will help us to provide you with a specialist service that will benefit you or your loved one specifically, tailoring the care and support we provide to your specific requirements. Residential care allows you to remain in the familiar surroundings of your property while benefiting from our services.

Why Opt for Parkinson's Care at Home?

A regular routine is one of the best ways to manage your or your loved one's symptoms of Parkinson's disease. One of the most critical routines to maintain is that of medication. If Parkinson's medication is irregularly taken, it can lead to dangerous consequences, creating an imbalance in the brain and unpredictable symptoms. These hazardous symptoms may include loss of speech or swallow, body spasms and psychosis. 

Here at Companions Home Care, our local highly-trained carers will take a one-to-one approach to your or your loved one's Parkinson's care. Comprehensive, individual care helps mitigate any stress that may arise from having a live-in carer that can sometimes promote problems associated with Parkinson's disease.

To ensure that your care service from Companions Home Care is as hassle-free as possible, we are happy to provide the following services:

  Overseeing medication schedules

  Housekeeping, cooking and general duties

  Aiding you with any tasks that your find difficult

  Working alongside other medical professionals

  Providing compassionate companionship and a reliable helping hand

What is Parkinson's?

Parkinson's is a complex progressive condition that affects neurological function and gradually worsens over time. Around 150,000 people in the UK are currently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, with their families struggling to manage their loved one's condition and not knowing how to manage their symptoms appropriately. Brain cells produce a chemical known as dopamine. 

When Parkinson's disease first takes hold, the brain cells are prevented from working correctly and are steadily lost over time. People will first notice that they are experiencing symptoms of Parkinson's disease when their brain does not produce enough dopamine, restricting their control over their bodily movements. 

Parkinson's Symptoms

Numerous possible symptoms may denote that someone has Parkinson's disease in advanced stages. However, three main physical symptoms are a sure sign that someone has the disease. 

The first of which is tremors. This advanced symptom involves the uncontrollable shaking of limbs, generally when they are relaxed and resting. The second physical sign that someone has Parkinson's is slowness in their movements. 

This can make everyday duties very difficult and distinguished by a slow, shuffling walking gait, taking small steps. The third symptom of Parkinson's is stiff muscles. This stiffness or tension in the muscles can reduce mobility and may lead to painful muscle cramps. 

Other physical symptoms may include:

  Loss of balance 

  Loss of smell 

  Nerve pain 

  Problems passing urine 

  Insomnia

  Constipation 

  Erectile dysfunction in men 

  Difficulty in achieving sexual climax in women 

  Dizziness 

  Blurred vision 

  Fainting 

  Difficulties swallowing 

  Excessive saliva production
