Our Personalised Parkinson’s Disease Home Care Plans
Our personalised plans are the ideal way to ensure your loved ones receive only the highest quality care for their individual needs. These plans include:
Establishing a Daily Routine
Introducing a daily routine that still allows for flexibility when appointments or unexpected events occur gives people with Parkinson’s security through familiarity. This can greatly impact their daily lives, helping them achieve greater self-control and independence.
Establishing a Daily Routine
We introduce activities into our daily routines that ensure our clients feel comfortable within their own homes, simultaneously building long lasting relationships with their care workers. Stressful situations are reduced as much as possible by ensuring that our activities and schedules offer flexibility and don’t rush clients.
Although distractions are sometimes healthy for focusing client’s minds on subjects other than their condition, they can often be detrimental to completing daily tasks. If we notice a client has a noisy environment, we will accommodate by turning off the radio, TV and other things so they can focus on what’s important.
Our care team understands the importance of keeping fit and healthy, which is why we actively encourage our clients to engage in physical activity such as a short walk outside of the house.

Rivendell Care embraces technology into our plans by providing a complementary care app. This can be used by our client’s families to stay up to date with the care being offered including notes, updates and the overall quality of care. 24/7 communication with our team is also available via the app.

Parkinson’s Disease Home Care FAQs
What is Parkinson’s Disease Home Care?
Parkinson’s disease home care provides a carer for individuals with Parkinson’s. The carers can create a personalised care plan that suits the individual’s lifestyle and helps them complete daily tasks such as eating a nutritious diet, cleaning and receiving daily engagement. Where people require medication, carers can help to remind and administer this daily as part of their care plan.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition that affects one in every 500 people. This is around 127,000 people in the UK alone and is more prevalent with elderly people. Parkinson’s disease occurs due to a loss of nerve cells in the brain that produce the chemical dopamine, a neurotransmitter that communicates information throughout our brain and body. Specialists do not know the reason why these brain cells die but there is extensive amounts of research and investment put into understanding the illness.
Can Parkinson’s be Cured?
Unfortunately, Parkinson’s disease cannot be cured, however, there are a range of treatments available. Through the use of medicine, such as Levodopa, the symptoms of Parkinson’s can be managed. There are also therapies available like physiotherapy and occupational therapy to help ease the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Surgery is another treatment where doctors perform DBS. This is where electrodes are implanted into specific parts of the brain to administer electrical pulses that stimulate the brain to help overcome the tremors and slow movements.
