Parkinson’s Disease

Helping you live with Parkinson’s in your own home

According to Parkinson’s UK, 1 person every hour is told they have Parkinson’s disease. It affects 1 in 500 of us and 1 in 20 of those diagnosed is under the age of 40. The symptoms of the  disease making living at home very challenging. Nobilis’ specialist Parkinson’s team, work with you and your family to create a tailored care package that addresses your specific needs and ensures you can enjoy life in the comfort and security of your own home.

It is a progressive neurological disease, which results in the loss of nerve cells in the brain. This causes a lack of dopamine in the body, a chemical associated with movement, which affects sufferers’ ability to move.

We don’t know why people get the condition and currently there is no known cure. However, with proper care and support, the condition can be managed and sufferers can enjoy a full and varied life.

Nobilis’ trained staff are experienced in delivering the best in-home support to Parkinson’s sufferers, helping manage their symptoms and giving them the care they need to live independently.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can be split into motor and non-motor. Motor involve problems with movement. Non-motor can involve pain, excessive sweating, depression and sometimes constipation.

Sufferers of Parkinson’s can experience a range symptoms of symptoms, very specific to them, so it is important that they receive a flexible and tailored care package that addresses their specific physical and emotional needs. In our experience a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not work.

At Nobilis we take the time to sit down with you and your family to create a care solution that is right for you.
