Help with Parkinson’s Disease by Healthsouth

The effects of Parkinson’s disease can be physically and emotionally hard on those who suffer from the disease and those who care for them. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the average age of onset is around 60, and the chances of being diagnosed increase with age. And, while the cause of the disease has not been proven it does tend to be more prevalent in men than women.

But there is hope. If diagnosed early, rehabilitative treatment and therapy can reduce the side effects, helping the patient lead an active lifestyle. The goal of our hospital’s Parkinson’s rehabilitation program is to give patients a chance to achieve maximum independence. The program teaches disease management by improving physical capabilities, including:

  • Individual assessment of patient’s strengths and limitations
  • Working with patients on endurance training, adaptive living skills, mobility training and communication/cognitive skills
  • Providing patient, family and caregiver education
  • Strengthening the patient’s self-image
  • Maintaining a continuum of care that focuses on independence and safety
