Parkinson’s disease care

We understand that individual experiences with Parkinson’s are very different, with varying symptoms and responses to treatment.

Care and support for those with Parkinson’s disease at home

Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition caused by a lack of a chemical called dopamine in the brain. This results in slower movements and tremors which are some of the more recognisable symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

The NHS estimates that around 1 in 500 people are affected. The symptoms of Parkinson’s usually begin slowly, develop gradually and in no particular order.

We’ve listed some of the more usual symptoms below, but the reality is that everyone living with the condition will experience the symptoms and challenges it brings them in their own unique way.

Signs and symptoms

The symptoms of Parkinson’s usually begin slowly, develop gradually and in no particular order. It is important to remember that everyone with Parkinson’s is very different and may have a different collection of symptoms and responses to treatment.

Radfield offers specialist support for those with Parkinson’s.

Our team of Care Professionals is on hand to assist with day-to-day tasks, such as all aspects of personal care, help around the home, getting out and about to the shops and preparing meals.

We can also administer medication and our Radfield Connected Care technology solutions allow us to monitor when medication is given. This is especially important with Parkinson’s Disease, because the timing of medication can make a significant difference to symptom control.

Our carers can also provide more general support to encourage and promote independence with day-to-day tasks and encourage regular exercise where possible. We always do this with the understanding that Parkinson’s symptoms can change not just from day to day but also from hour to hour.

The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease also evolve over time, which is why our services are designed to adapt care flexibly to fit current circumstances.

Talk to our team today and we’ll work with you to look at specific needs and how we can help meet them in the best possible way.
