CARING FOR PEOPLE WITH PARKINSON’S

It is a daily challenge caring for someone with Parkinson’s, especially later in the advanced stage of the disease. As someone’s Parkinson’s progresses, he/she may need more support. It’s important to get help by caregivers, so to inform yourself about which support is available and to get more information and help as a caring person. With progression of Parkinson´s some people need extra help with activities of daily life like bathing, dressing, eating and using the bathroom. Parkinson´s can cause a change in person’s thinking and emotions, leading to depression and anxiety and less activity in social life. But this does not mean that one should leave home and move into a residential care home, especially if support home-based nursing is possible as well. Support helps to ensure that people with Parkinson´s get questions answered and have an understanding for the doctor’s instructions. With the progression of the disease, people with Parkinson’s might need increased assistance with daily activities, up to 24 hour care.

DIVIDED IN TWO GROUPS: SYMPTOMS

Parkinson’s has a variety of symptoms affecting motor issues like tremors and rigid muscles. The other bucket has non-motor symptoms, like pain, loss of smell, and dementia. Not every patient experiences the same symptoms. Medication treating Parkinson’s work better for some people than others and therefore it is difficult to predict how quick the disease´s symptoms are worsening.
