At Home Care Assistance, you and your family’s health, wellness and comfort are our top priorities.
It’s our mission to ensure the highest quality standards of specialty care and assistance for you and your loved ones. Our partnership with the Parkinson’s Foundation in the U.S. has allowed us to incorporate the latest research into our customised care plans for our clients with Parkinson’s. This gives us access to cutting edge breakthroughs in medication and treatments, which we’re able to then incorporate into our in home care services for our clients.
We understand that living with Parkinson’s disease can be difficult, both for the patient and the family. As a chronic, neurodegenerative disease it can be emotionally difficult to handle. At Home Care Assistance, our philosophy is based on a “family first” approach to the way we offer in home care services for our clients.
Transportation and Errands
Our transportation assistance is a valuable aspect of our Parkinson’s care. Often driving can be difficult or almost impossible for those living with the disease. Home Care Assistance provides transportation and rides for our clients to appointments, the supermarket, therapy, or other programs. This takes a huge weight off the shoulders of the family who might otherwise play the role of nurse at home and allows them to maintain their own schedules and save time, knowing that in home care is provided.
Meal Preparation and Nutrition
Eating a healthy diet is important for those with Parkinson’s disease, as for anyone ageing in place. A clean and nutrient dense diet is critical because it helps strengthen muscles and bones while reducing muscle atrophy and excess fat accumulation. Home Care Assistance can help prepare healthy meals that will provide your loved one the nutrition he or she needs to maintain optimal health and vitality in his or her later years.
Personal Hygiene, Bathing and Dressing
When someone is living with Parkinson’s, it becomes difficult to accomplish some of the more common tasks we’re used to doing on our own. We provide in home care assistance to our clients in achieving these daily tasks while providing guidance and support to maintain independent ageing in place.
Our in home Care Workers keep a sharp eye on the clock and ensure that your family member or loved one always gets the correct medication on time – one of our key in home care services.
Our trained Parkinson’s disease Care Workers will give daily support and provide mobility assistance to those who need it as part of our in home care. Our skilled in home Care Workers are sensitive to our client’s needs to move and be independent and they provide support in instances when our clients need extra help because of muscular stiffness, shakes or tremors.
Companionship and Activities
One of the most valuable experiences that comes out of our in home care assistance program is the lifelong friendships and support our clients develop with our Care Workers. Having someone around to help clients engage socially is an essential part of our in home care services as it promotes good mental health, and we take pride in the relationships that we create.
Emotional Support for the Client and their Families
Parkinson’s disease can be emotionally exhausting and physically demanding, which is why we offer in home care support to our clients and their families through our hands-on in home care management. At Home Care Assistance, our emphasis on balanced caregiving drives our continued work towards providing a total holistic approach to managing and improving the lives of our clients with Parkinson’s disease.
Our High Touch and Specialised Approach
Our specially trained Parkinson’s in home Care Workers have the vision, knowledge and know how to plan and to see things before they happen.
