Around the Clock Parkinson’s Care Available for Mesa Seniors
Caring for an aging loved one with Parkinson’s disease is a compassionate and selfless act, one that Mesa Home Care Assistance knows much about. We respect individuals that wish to provide the highest level of quality care for their aging loved ones, but know that placing the entire burden of care on a family member can be emotionally and physically exhausting. The trained and reliable caregivers at Mesa Home Care Assistance are knowledgeable on the specific needs of Parkinson’s patients and are available to help anywhere from four to twenty four hours a day.
Highly Trained & Trustworthy Parkinson’s Caregivers
A Parkinson’s diagnosis includes constantly changing symptoms and results in the need for caregiver patience and understanding. All of our caregivers are carefully screened and must past our exclusive caregiver exam which tests for honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. They are also educated in the latest developments in Parkinson’s care to ensure the appropriate level of care is being provided at all times. We also understand that two of the biggest concerns when trying to manage Parkinson’s symptoms are medication management and fall prevention. A Home Care Assistance caregiver ensures safety and comfort by:
- • Keeping track of all prescription medications and supplements
- • Setting a timer for medications and monitoring dosage
- • Using Care Notes to assess daily changes in mood and behavior
- • Assisting with mobility when a “freezing spell” takes place
- • Monitoring 24/7 for fall prevention
Encouraging a Holistic Approach to Parkinson’s Care at Home
Parkinson’s disease may limit physical movements, but that does not mean it should limit overall quality of life. Home Care Assistance promotes the proven methods of our propriety approach to care, the Balance Care Method™. This method promotes a healthy well-rounded diet, regular physical activity, mental stimulation, social interaction, and maintaining a sense of calm and purpose. A Mesa caregiving companion provides care that meets the goals of the Balance Care Method™ by providing help with fitness, going on walks, cooking nutritious and delicious meals that do not conflict with medication, and by providing genuine companionship.
