Care for Degenerative Disorders in Arvada

Homewatch CareGivers of Arvada is committed to proving care for degenerative disorders to those that need it. Through Melinda Yeary’s efforts with the Parkinson’s Association of the Rockies (PAR), and the Huntington’s Association we have become recognized as a leader in home care for movement disorders. Melinda conducts a Parkinson’s Support Group every third Thursday of the month at the Apex Community Center at 6842 Wadsworth Blvd in Arvada. Many top neurologists have referred their patients with Parkinson, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease to our Agency. Annually, we sponsor a team at the PAR Vitality Walk. Melinda describes the work she does for the Parkinson’s Community as the single most rewarding thing she does. Each of our caregivers are trained on MS & ALS Home Care and the unique care requirements of those with movement disorders. Typically, the caregiving requirements of those afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s Disorder (PD) and Huntington’s Disorder (HD) are far greater than a normal healthy senior.

Families struggling with Parkinson’s are encouraged to attend Melinda’s support group. Please contact Melinda for more details @ 720-291-5200.

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.
