Care for Degenerative Disorders

People who live with a degenerative disorder such as Parkinson’s Disease, ALS, or MS, will often express very specific needs for home care assistance. At Homewatch Caregivers of Windsor and metro Hartford, care partners are matched with clients to align their experience and training to the unique needs of these disorders, and the special requests of our clients. Our staff is skilled in modifying care approaches based on level of impairment or disability.

Experience tells us that for people living with degenerative disorders, keeping up with their day to day routines and social connections is an important priority. A typical week for our clients who have MS or Parkinson’s Disease may include a trip to the hairstylist, meeting with friends for lunch or a movie, or going to the Senior Center for an event. Our Caregivers not only transport clients, but they also coordinate and participate in these activities, with a goal to enrich their clients' lives.

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.
