Living with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease?
The Jewish Home Family has specialized programs and services, along with highly trained staff, who can make the difference for you—and your family.
To effectively care for those with Parkinson’s disease, a far reaching, multidisciplinary approach is required.
At the Jewish Home Family, we have made a commitment to excellence in the care of individuals with Parkinson’s disease and created a comprehensive program across all elements of our system, including Jewish Home Assisted Living, the Jewish Home at Rockleigh, the Gallen Medical Adult Day Center and Jewish Home at Home.
Our approach to Parkinson’s is personalized for each individual and holistic, addressing the key components of mind, body and spirit. We also know that a diagnosis of Parkinson’s affects the whole family and we strive to keep families engaged and educated.
Our Program Includes:
- Specially trained staff
- Comprehensive individualized assessments
- Monthly review of the care with the neurologist, rehab team and nursing team
- Control of timing of medications and coordination of activities of daily living
- Dietary considerations
- Specialized adaptive equipment
- Ongoing consultations with the psychiatrist and psychologist
