Expertly Trained in Parkinson's Disease Care
Our Parkinson’s rogram is unique in the sense that our caregivers get to be a part of a specialized preparation program that was created with professionals from the Parkinson's Foundation Centers of Excellence. It is the first of its kind in the home care and senior care industry and it allows our caregivers to receive the very best in training and education required to create care plans for elderly adults that are living with Parkinson’s.
