Parkinson's Disease Assistance

Whether you care for someone who has been recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, are adjusting to new challenges as the disease progresses or have been living with Parkinson’s for a long time, a strong support network is essential for your wellbeing. Parkinson’s disease presents a unique challenge for caregivers, but there are many things you can do to maintain and improve quality of life and live well with Parkinson’s disease. At Senior Helpers in Stamford, our goal is to be a trusted, integral part of your support network. We will work with your family and medical team to provide non-medical support for the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease to help your loved one remain comfortable and as independent as possible given their condition.

Expertly Trained in Parkinson's Disease

Senior Helpers’ Parkinson’s Program is a specialized training program for our caregivers created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Centers of Excellence network. This program, the first of its kind in the in-home senior industry, is designed to provide our caregivers with the expert training and education necessary to create personalized plans for individuals living with Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s is a progressive condition, which means your loved one’s needs will change as the disease advances. At first, you may just need some assistance with running errands, but that might evolve to include assistance with personal support such as bathing and grooming or activities of daily living. There is not a one-size fits all approach to supporting our loved ones, which is why Senior Helpers works with each of our clients to develop a plan unique to their specific needs.

Senior Helpers caregivers are educated and trained on:

  • How Parkinson’s disease advances and changes
  • Techniques and strategies to identify and manage the motor (mobility/movement) and non-motor (cognitive/behavioral) symptoms of Parkinson’s
  • Home safety and fall prevention
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Medication timing/management and reminders
  • Light exercise to maintain balance, mobility and strength
  • How to notice changes in posture and facial expression and provide comfortable adjustments to maintain coordination and balance
