What is Parkinson’s care?

Experience an enhanced quality of life with our bespoke Parkinson’s home care services, granting you the freedom to shape your day according to your preferences.

Parkinson’s disease presents a spectrum of over 40 symptoms, making it a unique journey for each individual. However, one constant is the value of receiving care in the familiarity of your own home, surrounded by loved ones. This not only enhances overall health and well-being but also alleviates the stress often linked with transitioning to residential care, where unfamiliar surroundings can pose challenges.

When choosing Cherished Home Care, you will receive one-to-one support from our qualified carers, who have previous care experience and have attended extensive training on Parkinson’s in order to deliver the very best care.

This will involve assisting you with mobility and managing your symptoms, administering medication, encouraging exercise and ensuring that you have a well-balanced diet as this can improve rigid movements and reduce tremors.

What is Parkinson’s?

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological condition that primarily affects the central nervous system. This can cause a loss in motor function and cause symptoms such as tremors, rigidity, slowness of movement and trouble with sleep. In the UK, around 153,000 people are currently living with Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s is primarily caused by the loss of nerve cells in a specific region of the brain, resulting in a decrease in dopamine levels. Dopamine plays a crucial role in regulating body movements, hence its depletion contributes to the manifestation of various symptoms characteristic of Parkinson’s disease.

Different types of Parkinson’s care

Live-in Care

Live-in care

Around-the-clock
care

Live-in care is a specialised service, where one or two of our carers will reside within your home to provide you with around-the-clock support. This level of care is particularly beneficial for individuals with complex conditions like Parkinson’s disease, where continuous support throughout the day is essential for maintaining well-being.

Hourly care

Specialist care
by the hour

Our hourly care services are available to you through scheduled visits, starting from as little as one hour per day, three days a week. This flexible option empowers you to choose the frequency of care that best suits your needs. It’s an ideal choice for individuals in the earlier stages of their condition, providing support with light housekeeping, companionship, and personal care as needed.

Respite care

Short term care for you

Respite care offers a temporary care solution that provides assistance with your daily tasks and personal care from the comfort of your own home. It can be a preferred option if you have recently been discharged from hospital and need support for a short period of time, or if your family caregiver is taking a respite break to rest and recharge so that they can continue to provide you with exceptional care.

Palliative care

Bespoke end-of-life support

Palliative care focuses on improving the quality of life for those that are in the advanced stages of a health condition. This care option aims to support you with managing physical conditions, while receiving psychological assistance from one of our care experts. There are many benefits to choosing end-of-life support at home, as you get to choose who visits and how you spend your day whilst having your symptoms managed by a member of our team.

Costs of Parkinson’s care

The cost of Parkinson’s home care and other advanced neurological conditions can sometimes have a higher price point due to its specialisation.

When living with a condition such as Parkinson’s, it is important to compare the costs of live-in and hourly care. Live-in care can be a more cost-effective solution as you won’t have to worry about incurring additional fees for the service on top of the carer visit.

Our live-in care is available from £1,445 per week, and our hourly care starts from £29 per hour. A detailed estimate of the price will be determined once you receive your free home care assessment, conducted by one of our local care managers.

We are also one of the few providers to refund our set up fee once care has been received for four weeks.
