★★★★★ My family was connected to Liberty At Home Care in late July of this year (2023) to provide help at home for our 87 year old Mom who had sustained a fall in June with non-displaced (yet painful) pelvic fractures. Our interactions have all been very positive from the first time I met Colleen and Layla. The staff is genuinely committed to helping not only our Mom, but the entire family to make Mom's life more comfortable. My Mom has told me several times that her home health staff Betty is a wonderful person. We appreciate that Mom has the same caregivernearly 100% of the time.

Importance of Parkinson's Care

People with Parkinson’s often require specialized care due to the complex nature of the symptoms and the progression of the disease.

As the disease progresses, assistance with daily activities, mobility, and maintaining a safe living environment becomes vital.

Parkinson's disease is a multifaceted condition that requires a comprehensive and empathetic approach to care, ensuring that individuals maintain the highest possible quality of life throughout their journey with the disease.

What is Parkinson's Disease?

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects movement. It develops gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. While a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson's disease, the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. It affects the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine, and it’s characterized by motor and non-motor symptoms.

Key Characteristics and Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease:

Motor Symptoms:

  1. Tremors: Shaking usually begins in a limb, often in the fingers or hand.
  2. Bradykinesia: Slowness of movement.
  3. Rigidity: Stiffness in the limbs or neck.
  4. Postural Instability: Problems with balance and coordination.

Non-Motor Symptoms:

  1. Cognitive Impairment: Problems with attention and memory.
  2. Mood Disorders: Depression and anxiety.
  3. Sleep Disturbances: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.
  4. Autonomic Dysfunction: Issues with blood pressure, sweating, and sexual dysfunction.

Causes and Risk Factors:

  • The exact cause of Parkinson's disease is unknown, but several factors are believed to play a role, including genetic mutations and environmental triggers (such as exposure to toxins).
  • Age is a significant risk factor, with most people developing the disease around age 60 or older.

Management and Treatment:

  • While there is no cure for Parkinson's disease, medications, surgical treatments, and physical therapy can provide relief from the symptoms and improve quality of life.
  • Supportive care, occupational therapy, and lifestyle adjustments are crucial for managing life with Parkinson's.
