Parkinson’s Home Care Services in Chicagoland
Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder that damages the muscles, making movement uncomfortable and difficult for people who are affected. The disease is a degenerative one, which means that early symptoms will be minor and will worsen as the disease progresses. Stiff muscles, difficulty speaking, shakiness, tremors, and poor balance are some of the most prevalent symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. People who have these symptoms have a lot of trouble with daily duties like self-care and other things, and they will almost certainly need help to live comfortably at home. With our Parkinson’s home care services in Chicagoland, IL, Oasis Hospice Home Care can assist patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. For your peace of mind, our Parkinson’s caregivers have expertise caring for persons who have this disease, and we are certified, bonded, and insured. Our caregivers will help your loved ones with activities of daily living (ADLs) and other important household chores.
Progression of Parkinson’s Disease
Because the nerve cells that create dopamine break down and die in people with Parkinson’s disease, their brains have low amounts of dopamine. This results in aberrant brain activity, which has an impact on body movement regulation. The symptoms will appear in the early stages of the disease and will worsen as the disease progresses and dopamine levels drop.
Rigid muscles, slow movements, tremors, difficulties speaking, decreased posture and balance, and the loss of subconscious motions are the most common symptoms linked with Parkinson’s disease. As the disease advances, those who are afflicted may have the following complications:
• Cognitive issues: Parkinson’s disease can lead to cognitive impairment and perhaps dementia in the long run.
• Swallowing and eating problems: When people with Parkinson’s disease lose control of their muscles, chewing and swallowing become extremely difficult. As a result, people who are impacted are at risk of choking or starvation.
• Depression: People with depression may suffer worry, fear, and depression in the early stages of the disease.
• Sleeping problems: People with Parkinson’s disease may find it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep at night.
• Toileting problems: Incontinence can result from a loss of body control, and constipation can result from a slowed digestive process.
Professional Parkinson’s Caregivers
Our Parkinson’s caregivers at Oasis Hospice Home Care know how to offer the care that people with this disease require to be safe in their homes.

Extensive Training & Ongoing Education for Senior Care
Not all caregivers are qualified to care for people who have Parkinson’s disease or are recovering from a stroke. We require all caregivers at Oasis Hospice of Greater Chicago to complete extensive training on suitable elder home care practises through our Oasis Hospice University.
Our caregivers can effectively support older persons with day-to-day needs such as washing, grooming, dressing, therapeutic exercises, and more by having a deep awareness of both mental and physical symptoms of various disorders such as ALS, multiple sclerosis, and cancer recovery. Wherever you need it, our empathetic caregivers are also educated in hospice and palliative care.
When Your Loved One is Fighting Cancer
Oasis Hospice makes life easier for cancer patients when they are in the hospital or recovering at home. We have a large number of qualified carers on hand right now. Oncology patients benefit from caregiving at home because it gives aid, rest, and improves their attitude. Our skilled caregivers prepare meals, assist with light housework, assist with washing, clothing, and personal hygiene, provide company, assist with exercise, and transport to and from doctor’s appointments or treatments. By minimising stress, weariness, and despair, caregivers may be able to aid recovery.
Our caregivers will also monitor and keep your loved one company during surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation treatments, as well as conduct errands or notify the charge nurse in an emergency. They also allow you or other family members to go home and relax, safe in the knowledge that your loved one will never be alone.
