Care for Degenerative Disorders

At Sarasota Homewatch CareGivers, we work with a lot of clients who are living with Parkinson's disease. Because of the prevalence of Parkinson's in our area, we provide our caregivers with special training for our clients. We provide this training, and training for any care for degenerative disorders through our accredited Homewatch CareGivers University. We also provide caregivers one-on-one training for our client's specific care needs.

We also are very involved with the Parkinson's community. There are support groups that our clients attend, with their caregivers. Our caregivers tell us that they learn so much about Parkinson's from just attending, and that the support they show their clients is very meaningful. We have also worked with a stationary cycling group that caters specifically to people living with Parkinson's. These are just a few of the ways we work within our community to support anyone living with a degenerative disorder.

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.
