Parkinson's Disease

We know that Parkinson’s disease can affect people in different ways and at different speeds. And our individual approach is sensitive to the unique needs of each person.

Whether symptoms are physical; such as tremors, swallowing difficulties and balance issues, or related to mental health such as anxiety, depressions and hallucinations, our expert team can adapt their skills to suit each situation.

As always, it all starts with a personal assessment, which provides a platform for creating a tailored care plan designed to alleviate discomfort and enhance quality of life.

Exemplar Health Care has provided John with fantastic care over the last couple of years and are able to give him the support needed in a specialist environment and make sure his care is of the highest quality, even to the point of undertaking additional training in order to be able to accommodate all of John’s specific medical needs, some of which can be life threatening. Having that additional support has made a huge difference to our lives.

Nurse

As you’d expect, our specialist nursing care team is trained to manage the complex behaviours associated with Parkinson’s, providing emotional support and supplying medication where and when required.

Our homes are able to seek expert advice and support from Dr Marshall, Exemplar Health Care’s Consultant Psychiatrist, who has expertise in assessing and managing the psychiatric symptoms and signs associated with Parkinson’s Disease.

Dementia is a condition often brought on by the progression of Parkinson’s disease. It is important to keep an individual’s mind stimulated and brain active so their independence and life skills can be prolonged.
