Compassionate care for loved ones with Parkinson’s Disease

As a Gold Coast residential aged care home, HillView Care understands the unique needs of individuals with Parkinson’s and is dedicated to providing compassionate and personalised care to support you and your loved ones. In this article, we’ll talk about how our residential aged care homes offer invaluable support and assistance to those navigating the complexities of Parkinson’s Disease. 

About Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterised by motor symptoms such as tremors, rigidity, and bradykinesia (slowed movement). However, Parkinson’s can also affect cognitive function, mood, and other non-motor symptoms, presenting a range of challenges for individuals living with the condition and their caregivers.

Compassionate care and individual support

With Parkinson’s Disease, every individual has unique care needs. That’s why we offer personalised care plans tailored to meet their individual requirements. Our care team is experienced and knowledgeable, understanding the complexities of Parkinson’s Disease so they can provide the best level of care. 

Physical support

Tremors and difficulty with mobility are both symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease and can significantly impact your loved one’s quality of life. Both HillView Merrimac and Ashmore are equipped with amenities designed to support residents with Parkinson’s in maintaining their independence and mobility. From accessible accommodation to adaptive equipment and exercise programs, we do everything we can to create an environment that promotes physical well-being and enhances quality of life.

Cognitive and emotional support

Parkinson’s Disease can also affect cognitive function and mood, with many individuals struggling with memory loss, confusion and depression. At our Gold Coast residential aged care homes, we are here to provide comprehensive support for our residents with Parkinson’s, with emotional support, access to mental health services and activities organised by our lifestyle team to promote cognitive stimulation and emotional well-being.

We always collaborate with residents and their families to ensure their emotional and psychological well-being is prioritised.

Reducing social isolation

Individuals living with Parkinson’s Disease can feel isolated, so our residential aged care homes offer residents a chance to engage with others and take part in a range of activities that foster a sense of belonging and connection. These interactions aim to promote well-being and enhance quality of life. 

Empowering families and friends

Caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s Disease can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. When your loved one makes HillView Care their home, our team will assist every step of the way. They are here to give you guidance, education and help to ensure your loved one is receiving the very best care and support. 

At HillView Care, we are dedicated to providing compassionate, personalised care that meets the unique needs of each resident living with Parkinson’s. From specialised care plans to a supportive community environment, we are here to offer assistance, guidance, and peace of mind to families navigating the complexities of Parkinson’s disease. Together, we can empower individuals with Parkinson’s to live fulfilling and meaningful lives, surrounded by care, compassion, and support.
