Each person with Parkinson’s will experience symptoms differently. Many people experience tremor as their primary symptom, while others may not have tremors, but may have problems with balance. For some people, the disease progresses quickly, and in others it does not.
It is common for people with Parkinson’s to take a variety of these medications – all at different doses and at different times of day. While keeping track of medications can be a challenging task, sticking to a schedule is a critical part of the overall disease management.
A trained caregiver* can help ensure that medications are taken as prescribed. They can also assist with balance and mobility issues, as well as personal care, including bathing, dressing, meal preparation and more when needed. A professional caregiver provides assistance while promoting the individual’s dignity and independence. A professional caregiver is also trained to communicate changes or concerns that may need to be addressed by a medical professional.
