Parkinson’s is another degenerative disease that requires highly specialized care. Over time a patient’s control over motor functions will deteriorate, leading to symptoms such as tremors, impaired balance, and stiffness. Proper medication administration is necessary for a positive care outcome. This goes beyond correct dosage adherence. Awareness of side effects and their management requires a keen sense that comes from experience.
A daily routine with a personalized exercise regimen is pivotal for a Parkinson’s patient. A nurse will be able to conduct occupational therapy to improve the physical state of your loved one. In addition to delaying the worsening of physical symptoms, emotional wellbeing will improve. A skilled nurse will not only understand how to handle the condition, but will also be uniquely qualified to address changing needs.
