Need help at home to manage symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease? 

There is still much to know about Parkinson’s disease, for which there is no cure. Parkinson’s is a brain disorder that manifests in shaking, stiffness, difficulty walking and talking, and balance and coordination issues. The symptoms of Parkinson’s typically begin on a gradual basis worsen over time, so families can expect that a loved one diagnosed with the disease will need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) at some stage of this progressive disease. The professional caregivers at Amada Charlotte are trained and well-versed in how to assist seniors and other adults who are managing life with Parkinson’s. They can help adapt the home environment, help monitor systems and communicate changes to the care team and family members, provide medication reminders, assist with prescribed exercises, and much more. 

Stroke recovery assistance that meets a senior’s unique needs

A stroke can leave its adult or senior sufferer with paralysis, aphasia (a speech disorder), cognitive issues and other serious challenges such as memory loss, depression, trouble chewing and swallowing, numbness, bladder and bowel control issues, and more. Our trained caregivers at Amada Geneva have the experience, skills and empathy needed to help stroke patients manage these and other repercussions. As a member of our coordinated care team and adhering to the adult or senior client’s plan of care set forth by the healthcare provider, an Amada caregiver is able to assist with rehabilitation efforts and activities of daily living (ADLs).

At Amada Geneva, our caregiving goal is to do whatever we can to help adults and seniors recovering from a stroke to maintain the best possible quality of life—no matter what the prognosis—through each stage of rehabilitation. 

Support for keeping Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in check

COPD is an inflammatory lung disease that affects 15.7 million Americans. Conditions under the COPD umbrella include emphysema, chronic bronchitis and refractory asthma. Adults and seniors diagnosed with COPD experience symptoms such as frequent coughing, breathlessness and severe wheezing, and they often battle chest infections. Being that COPD can greatly impact quality of life, many seniors with COPD can also experience anxiety and depression. Understandably, a family caregiver may also experience anxiety and depression from the difficulty of seeing a senior loved one challenged by breathing complications. There is no cure, but some senior COPD patients receive treatment or participate in physical therapy designed to improve breathing. When an elder you love needs assistance at home with managing COPD symptoms, count on Amada Geneva to provide a trained and knowledgeable caregiver who can support your senior loved one’s efforts. An Amada Geneva caregiver is adept at helping adults and seniors with COPD follow the care plan outlined by their doctor or other medical professional.
