April is Parkinson's month of awareness, making it the perfect time for carers to share tips and tricks on a loved one with the disease."Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that mainly affects dopamine-producing" (dopaminergic) "neurons in a particular brain area called substantia nigra," according to the Parkinson's Foundation.

The nerve cells that the brain uses are destroyed to coordinate thoughts, motion, feelings, and senses — so that the signal to move is not conveyed. This can lead to symptoms such as shaking, muscle stiffness or rigidity, slow motion, loss of movement, and issues with equilibrium. As the disease progresses, it can become more and more challenging to look after your loved one. Whether you are assisting with daily tasks or managing everything from appointments, medication schedules, and more, consider these guidelines and use these tips to ease the process.

1.Research yourselves. Understanding the disease and how it progresses can ease the shock of particular diseases and prepare you for everyday life. Research the symptoms of how current medical circumstances can affect prognosis, clinical studies, and more. You need to ask the doctors of your loved one if they recommend books, magazines, or videos.

2. Consult about personal affairs with your loved one. Discussing the desires of your loved one after death is not a simple subject, but it is something you need to know as the primary caretaker. Make sure you are notified of their willingness to live, funeral plans (if ready), long-lasting lawyer's authority, and do-not-resuscitate order (DNR).

 

3. Look for assistance. Joining a support group gives you the chance to share your tale with other caregivers who know what you're going through. There are lots of online forums and social media sites where you can communicate with other caregivers or Parkinson's patients ' loved ones if there is no in-person community in your area.

 

4. Pay attention to yourself. Remember, self-care is essential, and the burnout of caregivers is real. While it is possibly tempting to bring your loved one's requirements above yours all day, make setting aside time each week to concentrate on you a priority every day. You can't be there to care for your loved one if you're not healthy.

 

5. Don't be scared to ask for assistance. No one can do everything alone. A skilled caregiver at home can reduce the burden of day-to-day duties, manage medicines, bathe, house chores, and so much more. ComForCare caregivers are prepared to give your family peace of mind.
