With one person diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every hour, the debilitating disease is on the rise.
Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s can be devastating as it makes daily tasks a challenge.
Parkinson’s attacks the nervous system, as the body doesn’t create enough Dopamine – the chemical needed for movement of the body.
Without sufficient levels of Dopamine, people lack physical control, resulting in a deterioration of their motor skills.
Visible signs include tremor, slowness of movement, balance problems, body stiffness and reduced facial expressions.
Non-motor symptoms include memory loss, confusion, speech/swallowing difficulties, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, reduced sense of smell, drooling, sweating and constipation.
This can be frustrating to those who have always lived an independent lifestlye.
CuraCare’s trained carers help tackle those challenges and help an individual and their loved ones live a normal life.
We believe a one size fits all approach doesn’t work with Parkinson’s and we tailor services to meet the needs of every individual client.
