We understand that taking care of someone with Parkinson’s disease can be challenging, and you may be feeling worried about the future.
With our support, you’ll be able to know that both you and your loved one will be taken care of.
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition, affecting approximately 1 in 500 people.
The disease results from the loss of nerve cells responsible for producing dopamine, a chemical messenger that coordinates movement.
The three main symptoms are tremors, muscle stiffness, and slow movement. Non-motor symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and memory issues can also occur.
What support is available?
Although there’s no cure, treatments are available to help manage the symptoms and maintain quality of life.
Medications, physiotherapy, and sometimes surgery can be used to treat Parkinson’s disease. We can work alongside other professionals involved in your loved one’s care.
A personalised care plan is crucial to address the specific needs of your loved one. In order to ensure your care plan is tailored to your individual needs, we arrange a free no obligation assessment to assess how we can best support you. We’ll also meet your family, put together a plan and arrange a start date for your care. Our assessments are detailed, and you’ll always be at the centre of our suggestions.
As a family member or caregiver, we’ll always make sure you have a say in the care your family member receives.
We can help you to stay informed and monitor your loved one’s condition, ensuring their changing needs are taken care of.
At Nexus Care Services, we’re here to provide guidance in your journey as a caregiver. By working together, we can help your loved one live a more fulfilling life.
We provide tailored care plans to support your individual needs. If you or a loved one needs support, contact us today at 0121 308 2906.
