Parkinson’s Caregivers that go Beyond the Basics
Caregivers are the heart of the Home Care Assistance experience. While we carefully screen all of our Parkinson’s caregivers for relevant work history and exceptional references, we also understand that Parkinson’s care is a long-term commitment. We take pride in helping to create a meaningful relationship between our caregivers and their clients, carefully matching them in terms of needs, personality and shared interests. This helps to foster a sense of trust and understanding, which can further promote feelings of self-esteem, worth and happiness for seniors with Parkinson’s.
All of our Parkinson’s caregivers are also trained in our Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM), a program that is designed to promote cognitive function, brain health and mental acuity for seniors of all ages and abilities. While Parkinson’s is often characterized as a movement disorder, its neurological effects can be extensive and far reaching, and CTM is just one of the ways our Parkinson’s caregivers can help delay such symptoms and promote quality of life.
Ongoing Care Management for Seniors with Parkinson’s
Because of the progressive nature of Parkinson’s, families are often concerned about their loved one’s ability to perform daily tasks on a day-to-day basis. For additional peace of mind, our Parkinson’s caregivers are required to take daily CareNotes, acting as the eyes and ears of the family and medical professionals. By carefully monitoring physical abilities and changes in mood or behavior, we can ensure that care is appropriately adjusted as the disease progresses. Our Care Managers also conduct regular quality assurance visits to ensure that the level of care is never sacrificed.
