According to the Alzheimer’s Association, nearly 6.5 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia as of 2022. A progressive disease that destroys memory and other key mental functions, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia impact not only the senior patient but the entire family, which is where Amada Pittsburgh NW comes in.

Supporting Senior Clients to Manage Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease 

There is still no cure for Parkinson’s disease, a brain disorder characterized by 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 Pittsburgh NW are trained and well-versed in how to assist seniors and other adults who are managing life with Parkinson’s. Amada caregivers 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.     

Dedicated Respite Care for Families When a Senior Loved One is in Hospice 

When a senior loved one begins the journey of hospice care, an increased level of care and responsibility naturally come along with the family’s deepening concerns. What’s required of the family can be unrelenting and exhausting in ensuring their beloved elder’s last weeks and days are filled with comfort and dignity. 

Amada’s expert, compassionate caregivers can provide a much-needed respite from the continuous care and extreme mental and emotional output that accompany the final passage. With emotions running high, family members often neglect their most basic needs including showering, eating and sleeping. The option to step away for a brea can provide family members with the opportunity to rest, refresh and regroup—knowing their parent, grandparent or spouse is in excellent hands—returning better able to be fully present with their loved one.
