Parkinson's Assistance
An_252646 posted:
My mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's about 8 years ago. Her functioning already limited has now been affected by 3 recent strokes. Her physicians have put her on anti coagulant even though she is a fall risk in order to prevent more strokes due a recent diagnosis of A Fib. She is currently at a rehabilitation hospital. I am researching about what is available to assist her when she returns home. We just now learned about weight assisted utensils. The aphasia from the stroke along with the Parkinson's is very hard for her to work through. She has PT, OT and Speech Therepy. We have a lift chair and a walker and keep everything that she needs on one floor. Are there any other devices that I may not know of that will afford her more independence?
Mark A Stacy, MD responded:
Dear AN_25646
I am sorry to read about your mother. I think you have just about all the device and mobility tools covered. Consider talking with a social worker to see if there may be other services available to help you and your mother adjust to this new life.
