Parkinson’s Disease Care with Christies Care
The physical disability that Parkinson’s Disease brings with it should not mean that you can’t carry on living an independent life, in your own home. With a live-in carer, our clients with Parkinson’s can still get up when they want to, go out when they want to, wash when they want to and live life as they want to.
Whether our client needs full time care, or a family carer just needs someone for a respite break, Christies Care has over 25 years’ experience of finding suitable, well trained carers to help people with Parkinson’s disease carry on living independently at home.
A live-in carer is there whenever you need her. If you have a bad day, you have her there to help you.
If you have a good day, she then becomes more of a housekeeper and a companion than a carer.
What does it cost? Depending on your wants, needs and your management model, the total cost is usually between £1,000 and £1,500 a week.
We train all Christies Care carers to help people move safely (from as little as helping someone to stand up, to full assistance using a hoist), as well as how to administer medication and how to carry out other personal care tasks. Most of all, they are trained to help people to stay as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
