Helpful tips to care for someone with Parkinson's disease
At Arbour Care, we understand how life changing a disease Parkinson’s can be. That’s why we’ve put together a couple of tips for you to consider when looking after our loved one:
- Person centred care – Ensure that you are treating our loved one as an individual, not just someone who has a condition.
- Issues with constipation – Due to the improper functioning of the autonomic nervous system, those who suffer from Parkinson’s can often suffer from constipation as their muscles don’t work as smoothly as expected. To help avoid this, ensure that your loved one is consuming more water, is in an environment that reduces their stress levels, ensure their diet is high in fibre.
- Exercise – Staying active can help sleep, strengthen muscles and joints as well as reduce stress and depression.
