Find the compassionate care you’re looking for.
Living with Parkinson’s disease or caring for a loved one with the disease is unique to each situation, but we want you to know that you’re not alone. Parkinson’s affects nearly 1 million people in the United States and more than 6 million people worldwide. Longleaf Liberty Park provides specialized Parkinson’s care to help with the neurological difficulties your loved one may be experiencing, tailored to each person’s symptoms and progression.
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. Those diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease may have trouble walking, talking or handling daily activities that require movement. Their voluntary movements become slower (a symptom called bradykinesia), and they may experience tremors in their limbs, face and hands, as well as rigidity in joints and muscles. Other symptoms include problems chewing and swallowing, sleep disruptions, depression and dementia.
Movement disorders can make simple everyday tasks, like maneuvering around the house, frustrating and potentially even unsafe. Through Parkinson’s care at Longleaf Liberty Park, residents receive a customized care plan, as well as help with daily needs, such as preparing meals and going to the doctor. What’s more, our nursing staff is on site 24 hours a day/7 days a week, and each residence is equipped with a wireless nurse-call system should an emergency arise.
Living in the highly accessible environment we provide helps decrease any risks your loved one may face at home and in turn, increases their confidence. At Longleaf, they’ll also have convenient access to on-site therapy and innovative technology for Parkinson’s care; not to mention the benefits from engaging programs and social activities to prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation.
We take care of life’s daily challenges so residents have more opportunities to engage and connect through our holistic wellness programming and recreational opportunities. You’ll find Parkinson’s care for your loved one surpassing your expectations at Longleaf Liberty Park – all within a bright, warm and welcoming place to call home.
