Find Person-Centered Care and An Engaging Lifestyle
Even though no case of Parkinson’s disease looks exactly alike, there are broad paths of similarity that have been observed in individuals with the disease – and our expert Parkinson’s care is here to help. Often voluntary movements become slower (a symptom called bradykinesia), accompanied by tremors in the limbs, face and hands and rigidity in joints and muscles – making simple everyday routines frustrating and potentially even unsafe. Parkinson’s care at Highpoint lessens the day-to-day strain of symptoms by providing 24-hour nursing support, accessible activities and a safe environment to help individuals maintain coordination and balance, as well as prevent falls.
