Parkinson’s disease care for seniors in Toronto

Does your elderly parent have Parkinson’s disease? Are you worried about their health and safety?

Things may have been pretty normal – even though your parent was diagnosed with Parkinson’s years ago. But now things have changed. Falls and loss of weight are signs that your parent needs help.

We understand the challenges for seniors who have Parkinson's disease

What you may not know about Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease can affect a person’s movement, balance and posture; it can result in shaking, fatigue and rigidity. It can affect swallowing and affect your parent’s ability to get a good night’s sleep. There is no cure for Parkinson’s but there are medications, therapies and regimens that can help.

Medications such as levodopa and dopamine agonists can be effective but dosages need to be closely and continually monitored and adjusted as needed as the disease progresses, and care providers need to be aware of significant side effects.

Physical activity can be beneficial in helping to maintain mobility and improve your parent’s quality of life. A regular program of exercise or participation in classes that are specifically designed for participants with Parkinson’s, such as tai chi, can be beneficial on both a physical and social level.

Helping you manage

Lisa, thank you. We are all very grateful for what you and your staff did for both our parents. We know how demanding an assignment it was at times. Having Registered Nurses overseeing my father’s care made all the difference – it’s hard to imagine how we could have gotten through the last four years without Eldercare Home Health. If you are ever asked for a reference, please feel free to contact me, although your reputation may make that unnecessary. All the best to you.

Registered Nurse case managed PSW care makes the difference (at no additional cost)

At Eldercare Home Health we’ve been providing care for clients with Parkinson’s since 1995.

A real, Ontario Registered, Registered Nurse (not a franchise owner, sales person or PSW) will assess your parent at no charge.

We will assign a Registered Nurse Case Manager to the care of your parent (at no additional cost).

We understand Parkinson’s medications and the side effects. We will liaise with your parent’s doctor, pharmacist and other members of the healthcare team on a professional level. We’ll also advocate for your parent.

Eldercare Home Health is “plugged in” to the various resources for clients with Parkinson’s in Toronto, and we are well acquainted with many of the top Parkinson’s specialists in Toronto.

We understand the issues that your parent with Parkinson’s deals with every day. And we know that you may be worried about falls and safety. Our goal is to provide the care your parent needs and the peace of mind that you need.
