At Life At Home, we empathize with the challenges that come with receiving a Parkinson’s disease or Parkinson’s Plus Syndrome diagnosis. Recognizing that there is no universal approach to dealing with this diagnosis, we acknowledge that circumstances and experiences vary for each individual affected by Parkinson’s, as well as their care partners, family members, and friends.
The journey can be overwhelming, evoking emotions such as anger, confusion, numbness, or sadness. It’s important to understand that these feelings are normal, and you are not alone. Living well with Parkinson’s disease necessitates both knowledge and support. Given that Parkinson’s is a progressive disease with evolving challenges, your support needs will also change over time. Life At Home is able to make the journey more manageable and provide support in a multitude of ways:
Exercise is undeniably crucial for managing and potentially reversing the symptoms of Parkinson’s. It has been substantiated that regular physical activity offers numerous benefits to individuals with Parkinson’s, including a decreased risk of falls and injuries, enhanced cognitive and motor function, and alleviation of non-motor symptoms like depression, fatigue, and insomnia. Moreover, exercise has demonstrated the ability to safeguard neurons in the brain from deterioration, fostering the development of new neural pathways. This, in turn, improves cognitive processing and has the potential to slow or even reverse the progression of Parkinson’s disease.
In line with recommendations from Parkinson’s Canada, it is advised that individuals with Parkinson’s engage in aerobic exercise three days per week and incorporate strength training on 2-3 non-consecutive days, with each session lasting at least 30 minutes. Additionally, sustained stretching, along with the integration of balance, agility, and multitasking exercises into daily life, is encouraged for individuals with Parkinson’s to promote overall well-being and symptom management.
Highly recommend Life At Home! Quick to reply and kind staff. We had the chance to ask questions during our in-home assessment and they took the time to really understand what we needed for my Father and involved us in every step. We have referred a few friends and everyone raves about their staff and services. We also really loved having access to their Family Portal, which other companies did not provide.Serge Savard Dec 12, 2023
My mom received around the clock care from Life At Home for a little over a year before she passed away. She had memory issues (dementia) that progressed very fast but it was her wish after my father's passing to remain in their condo. Living 5 hours away, it was hard to know if she was truly being taken care of by the previous agency we used. Life At Home's consultation process was a breeze, after the assessment I knew she would be in great hands. The caregivers chosen for my mom were wonderful. I received a report after every visit and the office staff were always pleasant to chat with. Thank you again, I am truly grateful.Kylan L Nov 11, 2023

I have been a member of the Life At Home team for almost a year now and have had nothing but a positive experience. When I first started working for LAH in March of last year, I was a bit nervous as this was the first job that I would have in this field. Thankfully the staff at LAH really helped me and guided me through the process. They introduced me to new clients and they provided a clear and precise Care Plan for each client, outlining what their diagnosis are and what we are there to help them with.The staff at Life At Home create a stress free and easygoing environment for us employees.
