Parkinson's Care

For those living with Parkinson’s disease and the family members that care for them, it is vital to have a strong support network to ensure everyone’s health and well-being. Parkinson’s disease presents unique challenges for those who have it, but also for their caregivers. There are many things that both can do to help improve quality of life and get through daily tasks. Senior Helpers of South Bend is a trusted provider for Parkinson’s care, and we want to become an integral part of your family’s support network. Our South Bend, Granger, Notre Dame, and Mishawaka Parkinson’s support service team and disability caregivers work closely with you, your loved one, and your medical team to ensure that all your needs are met and that your loved one can live comfortably with their Parkinson’s symptoms, as independently as possible.

Expertly Trained in Parkinson's Disease Care

Seniors Helpers of South Bend offers a Parkinson’s Care Program to our caregivers which is a specialty training program created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Centers of Excellence network. This South Bend, Granger, Notre Dame, and Mishawaka, IN Parkinson's support service and disability care program is the first of its kind for the home care industry and gives each of our caregivers the tools and resources to create custom care plans for those living with Parkinson’s disease.

Since Parkinson’s disease is a progressive condition, your loved one’s needs will change over time, and we are here to provide care through each phase. At the beginning your loved one may need lighter assistance such as help running errands, but may later need help with more extensive tasks such as personal care and mobility. We know that each individual will progress differently which is why we take a unique approach to everyone’s care with our South Bend, granger, Notre Dame, and Mishawaka, IN Parkinson’s support services and disability care. A caregiver from Seniors Helpers will work with you closely to determine what services are best for your loved one.

Senior Helpers caregivers are educated and trained on:

  • How Parkinson’s disease changes and advances over time
  • 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

  • Medication timing/management and reminders
  • Light exercise to maintain balance, mobility, and strength
