Care for Degenerative Disorders

In Plano, we provide home care for MS (multiple schlerosis), Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). These are some of illnesses for which we provide care for degenerative disorders in but that doesn’t mean we are limited to only caring for people which just those degenerative disorders though.

We take caregiver training very seriously and we only let a caregiver go to a clients’ home after they have been properly trained. When we have a client living with Parkinson’s disease, we might be focused on the fall risk and therefore our caregiver is selected, in part, based on their ability to mitigate that risk. Also, a family caregiver may not be able to physically assist with necessary activities such as bathing or showering their loved one and so our caregivers can provide that back up. 

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis can be extremely painful and affect a person’s ability to take care of themselves. Homewatch CareGivers is here to provide in home care when you or a loved one experience a flare up of osteoarthritis symptoms or rheumatoid arthritis pain. Know when to ask for additional help so that you can continue to live a full and independent life.
