On June 20th, president of Assisting Hands Home Care Richard Ueberfluss presented on the topic of Parkinson’s and Discharge Planning to a number of local franchisees. It was an educational seminar to gain a better understanding of the Parkinson’s disease state, symptoms, anatomy, medication, fall prevention, freezing control, and stress relief. This presentation aimed to educate those who work with Parkinson’s patients on a daily basis, improving their quality of life and helping them to feel safe.
About Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s is a neurologically degenerative disease that affects the patient’s physical movements and cognitve abilities of the brain. Affecting 1 million Americans today, those suffering in the later stages will experience tremors, stiff muscles, shakiness, poor balance, and even difficulties speaking.
Parkinson’s usually starts at the age of 20, but may not be noticed until years later. Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but professional home care agencies are always working to keep them safe and comfortable in their own home.
