In-home Nursing Care for Parkinson’s Disease Patients

Family members who take care of loved ones living at home with Parkinson's disease are highly susceptible to burnout as simple daily activities – grooming, eating and socializing -- become difficult for the patient. Adding to the stress, Parkinson's patients are susceptible to tripping and falling.

By engaging the Evergreen Nursing Vancouver in-home nursing service, your family gets a much needed break and your loved receives the best quality care from our compassionate and expert team of home support care aides, Licensed Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses.

About Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. It develops slowly and worsens over time, resulting in tremors, stiffness and slowing movement.

Parkinson's disease causes chemical changes to the brain that can leave your loved one feeling anxious and depressed. Clients often become frustrated as walking, talking and eating become more difficult and as they become more dependent.
