Parkinson’s is one of the most prevalent diseases among the older population around the world. Talking about America only, around 60,000 elders are diagnosed with the disease annually. People who are 50 years old and above are at the highest risk of developing Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s disease mainly affects the cerebral abilities of an individual. The brain is the major organ that falls prey to the disease and affects your life to an unimaginable extent. In worst cases, patients are likely to forget about themselves, their life story, family, friends, and even who they have been throughout their life. The worst part of the disease is that the body loses its ability to coordinate and maintain a balance. The affected individual experiences constant shaking of the body which hampers their ability to even walk, stand, and move on their own. Thus, they require high-quality and persistent care. But this time the level and intensity of care might be different than usual. If you are already taking care of a Parkinson’s patient or are looking forward to someone, this article is for you!
