Compassionate Parkinson’s Care for Waterloo Seniors
At Home Care Assistance of Waterloo and Kitchener, we believe there is no place like home. With the right support systems, seniors of all abilities can continue to age in familiar surroundings, carrying out their regular routines and enjoying favorite activities. For seniors with Parkinson’s, we have a team of highly trained and compassionate caregivers who are available to provide care twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
Understanding the Needs of Seniors with Parkinson’s
When living with Parkinson’s, some days will inevitably be easier than others. On the days that prove to have a few more challenges, you can trust that our trained Parkinson’s caregivers are equipped with the skills, experience, and expertise to:
- Provide Mobility Support – Our Parkinson’s caregivers assist with walking, navigating stairs, and transferring from the bed or wheelchair to reduce fall risk when tremors, balance, and mobility begin to threaten safety.
- Assist with Personal Care – Treating clients with the utmost dignity and respect, caregivers assist with showering and bathing, getting dressed, and incontinence. Our Parkinson’s caregivers also assist with feeding should swallowing become difficult to prevent choking.
- Manage Behavioral Changes – To counteract depression, anxiety, and hallucinations caused by the change in dopamine production associated with Parkinson’s, our Parkinson’s caregivers provide companionship, create social ties and offer reassurance and support for enhanced feelings of safety.
- Engage the Senior Physically and Mentally – By encouraging seniors with Parkinson’s to participate in regular daily activity, providing assistance with physical therapy exercises, and engaging them through stimulating conversation, activities, and our revolutionary Cognitive Therapeutics Method, we allow seniors to thrive at home.
Experienced Parkinson’s Caregivers Families Trust
Instead of a group of rotating caregivers, we carefully match clients and families with caregivers based on skills, personality, and shared interests. As a trusted caregiver begins to get to know your loved one, he or she will be able to identify even the smallest changes in physical or cognitive behavior so adjustments can be made to care plans, medications, diet, or other factors that influence quality of life. Families are made aware of any changes through CareNotes and can enjoy peace of mind that the highest quality of care is being provided at all times.
