How to take care of a person with Parkinson’s disease?
Hi, I am a 29-year-old female. My father told me that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. He is 60 years old. What should I do to help him? Please suggest to me how I can make him feel better? How can I help my father who is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease?
@soniya Hello, Sorry to hear that your father is suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Your father needs extra support and care. I hope with time you get used to the rigid movement, poor balance, and tremors. Parkinson’s disease is a movement disorder. I would suggest learning everything about this disease and helping with any other day-to-day tasks they have difficulty with on their own. Helping him to exercise as it is important for everyone, but it’s especially helpful for people with Parkinson’s disease. Exercise improves strength, balance, memory, and quality of life in people with this condition. Be patient with him as Parkinson’s can affect his ability to walk quickly, and to speak clearly and loudly enough to be heard. A speech therapist can teach them exercises to improve the volume and strength of their voice, and a physical therapist can help with their movement skills. Your extra support and care can help him feel better.
