What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that affects a particular part of the brain.
It affects motor skills, leading to tremors, slow movement, rigidity, difficulty speaking or swallowing, and impaired balance and coordination (high fall risk). Parkinson’s may also involve confusion, dementia, change in mood, loss of appetite, fatigue, constipation, hallucinations, or sleep disorder.
How can we help?
We understand many of the needs and concerns of those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease and those who care for them, such as:
How do I advocate for my loved one? He needs my help to coordinate all of his needs and pay his bills. His doctor and the bank won’t talk to me!
I am overwhelmed with balancing my work life, family life, and caring for my aging parent(s).
How do I balance my loved one’s safety and independence? Her safety and dignity are of utmost importance to me.
The rehab facility says that it is not safe for mom to go home. What do we do now?
How will I afford my care? Will Medicare cover it?
How do I protect my home from the State?
How do I preserve my hard-earned savings from the high cost of long term care, in order to leave a legacy for my spouse and loved ones?
