Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive disorder that affects how we move and think.
While it’s most commonly diagnosed in people who are 60 years or older, early-onset PD can present in patients as young as 40 years old. Everyone’s symptoms are different and can involve a combination of mobility issues or other related symptoms, including forgetfulness, sleep disturbances, depression, fatigue, and more. Similarly, every patient will have unique goals – whether that’s continuing to work in some capacity or simply to age-in-place comfortably as they enter their senior years.
Tandem Careplanning has a network of highly-vetted, trained caregivers that provide Parkinson’s home care for people with PD and their families. Our Care Team helps you or your loved ones find caregivers who can readily adapt to the situation, fitting in and around family and friends, and helping them continue to do the things they love. All our caregivers undergo training and background checks before being hired and have access to specific Parkinson's training for caregivers. From there, you and your family get to decide whose skill set best matches your needs.
Throughout the process, Tandem is available for 24/7 support to adjust to your evolving caregiver needs, answer any questions, or address your concerns. We can also help ensure that instructions from healthcare professionals are communicated and followed, whether that’s medication reminders, speech therapy, or physical therapy.
