Aging • Caregiving Parkinson’s Disease Care Massachusetts – Parkinson’s Support Near Me
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive condition, which means there will be a progression of care needs as the disease advances. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, the best time to learn about in-home care options is before those options are needed.
In-home care keeps people with Parkinson’s in familiar surroundings where they are happy and comfortable. When you choose to have care at home, you avoid some of the pitfalls that come with using assisted living or skilled nursing care. You have more control – your visitors can come and go as you please, you can reduce your exposure to flu, colds and COVID carriers, you can choose when and what you eat each day, and you can stay where you’ve built happy memories.
In-home Caregivers help individuals who have Parkinson’s with showering, getting dressed, medication reminders, proper nutrition, help with exercises and physical therapy, transitioning from hospital to home, and companionship.
Just as important, in-home care can give family caregivers a break. According to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, it’s essential, too, for care partners to take care of themselves. Parkinson’s progresses slowly, and the role of the care partner can last for decades. Care partners need to take time out to renew their energy and stay healthy.

Parkinson’s and Dementia
Parkinson’s disease causes physical symptoms at first. Problems with cognitive function, including forgetfulness and trouble with concentration, may arise later. As the disease gets worse with time, many people develop dementia. This can cause profound memory loss and makes it hard to maintain relationships.
