At Dove Home Care over the last 2 decades we have been helping people suffering with Parkinson’s disease along with its three symptoms;
We can help in making sure that your loved one takes their medication at the right time, this is vital in ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcomes with the medication. We can help by assisting you with personal care, at a time that suits you and even assists you bathing or washing and dressing if that is proving difficult to do by yourself. A carer can also help by taking you to your appointments, going out for walks, shopping trips, social events and if you’re experiencing problems at night, we can arrange for a carer to stay for the night. We have found, in our many years of experience, that the sense of isolation can be alleviated by companionship and a cheerful person to support through this difficult disease.
We were contacted by the daughter of a Parkinson’s sufferer, she was worried about her mother, Mrs A who was temporarily in a BUPA Nursing Home as she couldn’t manage to live on her own. Mrs A had already moved into a McCarthy and Stone One Bedroom apartment but had become depressed and unable to cope. Mrs A wanted to live in her own home, and to achieve this, our carer agreed to sleep in the living room and Mrs A had her own bedroom. The improvement in Mrs A’s quality of life was transformed and she started to enjoy daily living again. She developed a great relationship with her first carer, and she became her key worker. We looked after Mrs A. for over a year, till sadly she lost her battle with Parkinsons’ Disease. Her daughter was so grateful that her mother had such loving care and support during this very difficult time in her life. This is our aim, we cannot change the fact that a person is unwell or disabled, but we can ensure with the right support, that it is the best that it can with dressing if that is proving difficult. We can help by taking you to appointments, going out for walks, shopping trips and if you are experiencing problems at night, we can arrange for a carer to stay the night.
