Expert Home Care & Support for Parkinson’s Disease Patients
Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. The cause is unknown at this time. Parkinson’s disease symptoms include muscle rigidity, tremors and changes in speech and gait. About 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease usually begins when a person is in his/her 60′s; although can strike in a person’s 20s. The nervous system works like a communication center and helps us make sense of what is happening inside and outside the body. Parkinson’s disease touches every area of the individual’s life. Family and loved ones, especially spouses, are also affected. Knowledge of specific training and a comprehensive approach are key to providing the best services to persons affected by Parkinson’s and their family members.
Signs & symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease can include:
The symptoms of Parkinson’s are caused by over-or-under-activity cholinergic or dopamine (chemical messengers in the brain)
- Weakness and stiffness
- May have slumped, bent-over posture
- Shuffling walk, poor balance
