Parkinson's Disease Care
The support you need to continue living in the familiar surroundings of your home
Specialist conditions require specialist support
Our specialist carers are trained to identify the signs and symptoms associated with Parkinson’s. We provide them with a good background knowledge of the variants of the condition from Idiopathic Parkinson’s, the most common form, to those less well known such as Multiple System Atrophy. This is key to creating a plan together, which sets out how they will help manage the many and varied everyday challenges and practicalities that could present themselves.
Being cared for at home with on hand assistance and support for problems encountered with mobility and swallowing, helps to reduce the anxiety and falls which can be typical to those living with Parkinson’s.
Whether a client needs full-time care, or a family caregiver just needs someone to provide a respite break, we have over 30 years’ experience of matching suitable, well-trained carers to help people living with Parkinson’s disease to carry on living life as they choose in the home and the community they know.

Christies Care in action - real life stories
Ken started to show symptoms of Parkinson’s when he was 60. A vibrant, energetic and successful man, he soon had to start to rely on his wife to carry out a lot of everyday tasks. After four years of slow deterioration, Ken got so that on bad days he couldn’t get out of bed alone.
Ken’s wife by this time was exhausted and called on Christies Care to provide respite care. This gave her the break she needed and the opportunity to spend time staying with her daughter. She would call on carers for a fortnight every three months allowing her to recharge her batteries. She needed these respite breaks.
As time went on, Ken’s wife realised that she actually couldn’t care for her husband by herself any more. But she wasn’t going to send him to a residential home – after all, they were still very much married. So they now have a live-in carer from Christies Care full-time. The carer does the caring and helps with housekeeping duties. Most of all, she gives her clients the chance to lead their life as they had prior to Ken’s illness.
