Flexible Parkinson’s Care for Philadelphia Seniors
Although Parkinson’s may restrict movements, it doesn’t have to restrict life. At Home Care Assistance of Philadelphia, we specialize in Parkinson’s home care, providing seniors with the level of care needed to promote independence and quality of life throughout each stage of the disease. Unlike other home care agencies, we do not require long-term contracts or commitments. We understand that Parkinson’s symptoms are not always predictable and give you the freedom to modify your hourly or live-in care schedule as needs change or evolve.
Experienced, Trained & Qualified Parkinson’s Caregivers
Caregivers are the heart of our company and will become an integral part of your loved one’s life. This is why we have strict hiring standards, resulting in the employment of about 1 in every 25 caregiver applicants. Along with prior work experience, exceptional references and no criminal history, caregivers must also demonstrate honesty, compassion and a genuine passion for caregiving which we test through our exclusive PhD developed psychological examination. Caregivers are then provided with advanced Parkinson’s training, ensuring that they can effectively assist with:
- Nutritious meal preparation and feeding
- Bathing, dressing, grooming and incontinence
- Mobility and safe bed and wheelchair transfers
- Light housekeeping, laundry and changing bed linens
- Transportation for medical appointments and errands
- Medication reminders and prescription pick-ups
Boost Cognitive Health with Our Unique Wellness Program
Parkinson’s is a neurological disorder, meaning that mental stimulation, socialization and engagement can help delay and manage symptoms. All of our caregivers are trained in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method, an in-home program unique to Home Care Assistance. Caregivers utilize a variety of brain games and activities to engage their clients on a one-to-one basis, stimulating brain fitness, mental acuity and cognitive vitality. Available at no additional cost, CTM can help improve quality of life and provide your loved one with a welcomed sense of achievement and independence.
