Let PeachTree Place Assisted Living, near Ogden and Salt Lake City, UT, help you recognize the signs of Parkinson’s Disease. We are a West Haven-based senior community that offers assisted living apartments to residents who still want some independence but need a little help living with Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, and other types of dementia.
Signs & Symptoms Of Parkinson’s
Having a clear understanding of Parkinson’s Disease can help you, as caregivers, know if your loved one is simply experiencing the normal symptoms of aging or exhibiting tell-tale signs of a larger problem. Recognizing these symptoms can lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment for the seniors in your care which can lead to better treatment and overall better quality of life.
- Persistent tremors or shaking in the hands, limbs, and face area even when these body parts are resting.
- Stiff arms, legs, back, or neck not due to arthritis.
- An overall lack of balance or unsteady feeling that isn’t improved by canes or walkers.
- Consistent sleep problems due to sudden body movements.
- Frequently spacing out or a blank stare, not due to medications.
- Depression, anxiety, and memory problems.
- Reduced sensations.
- Difficulties with urination and constipation
- Nausea, dizziness, and vertigo
- Vision changes.
- Increased salivation and sweating.
Assisted Living Vs. Home Care
While early, accurate diagnosis can greatly improve the quality of life of seniors with Parkinson’s Disease, as time goes on symptoms can worsen. Needing to continually adapt to the changes in health, abilities, and independence may make in-home care difficult and take a toll on caregivers. We’re here to help.
