Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement, muscle control, and balance as well as numerous other functions. Parkinson’s progresses slowly in most people and it is not uncommon for individuals diagnosed with PD to live 20 years or more from the time of diagnosis. If you or a loved one has been diagnoses with this disease, Dimi Home Health Care can help maintain a good quality of life.  In the early stages of the disease, caregivers will assist with making life safer and easier at your home. They will be able to assist with the daily activities of life, keep the patient active as long as possible and assist with challenging brain exercises. As the disease progresses and the condition worsens, caregivers can adapt the daily routine to support the decline with flexibility and creativity.

DiMi caregivers can also provide a needed respite for the family caretaker. It is important that the caretaker look after their own physical and mental well being during this stressful time.
