Parkinson’s disease (Parkinson’s) is a progressive neurological disorder, caused by a loss of a chemical called dopamine. It is classified as a Movement Disorder and can be managed with medication for many years. It is a progressive life-changing condition which can lead to difficulties in daily life, which over time makes an increased level of care and support essential. Being looked after in a safe home surrounding, supported by experienced carers can help people diagnosed with the disease maintain a comfortable, fulfilling quality of life.
Our carers fully understand the challenges faced when caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s and have experience including own family members with this disease. As some symptoms of Parkinson’s such as anxiety reduce with routine, we ensure continuity of care and introduce the support team of carers that are will be involved as care needs evolve with the progression of this disease.
Our approach is to minimise the disruption of a Parkinson’s diagnosis by providing the support clients, families and friends need to help them cope. This support returns to the family the opportunity of quality time with reduced stress for all.
As everyone’s experience and need are individual and unique, our care services can be tailored to specifically match your requirements. Our Care Plans are agreed with you and reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet your needs.
All of the services are tailored to meet the needs of each individual and our care services are available from as little as an hour a week right through to 24/7 care at home. Some of the home care services we offer clients with Parkinson’s include:
Assistance With Personal Care
Assistance with shopping, appointments and recreational activities

Short term respite at home to allow the family carers some free time.
High dependency care at home
