On top of the standard housekeeping, social and administrative duties they can perform, each carer sent to a service users with Parkinson’s disease can also assist with:
- Exercise – To improve mobility and muscle strength while reducing stress. Something as simple as a walk a day, light exercise in the home or a trip to a dance, swimming or gym class can make all the difference.
- Medication – The timing of medication is often essential to the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
- Diet – The effectiveness of some drug treatments can be influenced by diet, therefore additional precautions need to be taken when preparing meals. Also one of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is weight fluctuation, so the right balance needs to be struck in any diet.
- Appointments – Doctors and specialists will need to be visited from time to time to monitor the effectiveness of treatment.
