Person-Centered Care For Those With Parkinson’s Disease
While movement disorders can make everyday tasks, like maneuvering around the house, frustrating and potentially even unsafe, Parkinson’s care at The Crossings at Riverchase reduces the day-to-day strain of these symptoms. Residents receive 24-hour nursing support, accommodating activities and an accessible environment to help maintain coordination and balance, as well as prevent falls. Additionally, each apartment is equipped with a wireless nurse-call system in case an emergency arises.
Our care team works with families to create a personalized care plan so that families have peace of mind, despite the unpredictable nature of the disease. If an individual’s voluntary movements become slower (a symptom called bradykinesia), accompanied by tremors in the limbs, face and hands and rigidity in joints and muscles, we’re always on hand to help with daily needs and provide support. And when all of life’s challenges are more manageable, residents are free to participate in the many opportunities available at our community – from holistic wellness programming to social events and other on-site activities.
Until the medical community finds a cure for Parkinson’s disease, Parkinson’s care at The Crossings at Riverchase brings uplifting encouragement to the everyday and improves residents’ quality of life through different stages of the disease. Contact us to learn more about how your loved one could benefit from a more comfortable, fulfilling lifestyle in our secure, homelike community.
