Managing care needs for a senior living with Parkinson’s and ensuring the person’s quality of life will come with a different set of challenges with each disease stage. Early Parkinson’s typically requires less hands-on care but that likely will change as PD progresses into more critical symptoms like tremors, walking or balance difficulties, rigidity or stiffness, and slow movement or loss of movement, along with increased difficulty in swallowing, speaking and understanding. The knowledgeable, compassionate and professional senior care team at Amada Colorado Springs is here to help you find up to 24-hour Parkinson’s care in Cimmaron Hills, Manitou Springs, Stratmoor, Widefield, and other Colorado Springs communities. 

Parkinson’s Home Care Services by Amada Chicago

Amada caregivers are trained on how to assist a Parkinson’s client to manage PD symptoms in ways that can positively impact the diagnosed senior’s quality of life and that of the family. As the disease advances, our in-home care for Parkinson’s clients will deliver the specialized care and attention required. Because of their training, Amada Chicago caregivers understand that in-home care for Parkinson’s seniors requires all of the following and more: 

  • Offer patience and empathy while assisting senior Parkinson’s clients with actitivities of daily living, while still allowing the senior to do as much as possible.
  • Encourage communication, ambulation, social activities and social involvement as much as possible while the senior PD sufferer is still able to participate and be involved.
  • Help to make the PD client’s home environment safe by keeping pathways open, clearing obstacles and removing floor rugs or unsteady decor.
  • Serve as a member of the Parkinson’s home care team by observing symptoms, giving medication reminders, following the senior PD client’s dietary plan as prescribed by a physician, and assisting with physical or speech therapy exercises or other non-medical tasks.
