(Fort Lauderdale, FL – August 21, 2017) Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale
, the area’s leading agency for in-home senior care, is proud to support the partnership between Home Care Assistance
and the Parkinson’s Foundation. Home Care Assistance is the trusted provider of home care for families and senior and health care professionals alike, providing a diverse roster of qualified caregivers to meet each client's needs. Creating a partnership with the Parkinson’s Foundation opens the opportunity for the latest research to be incorporated into customized care plans for clients with Parkinson’s disease.
“Home Care Assistance has always tried to leverage the latest scientific research to improve the lives of our clients,” said Manpreet Dhalla, Owner and President of Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale. “I’m proud that our organization continues to partner with an amazing organization like the Parkinson’s Foundation to continue our mission of changing the way the world ages.”
One example of how research can be used in the home is through the alignment of medication and meal times. Many people living with Parkinson’s have difficulties chewing and swallowing food; medication can alleviate this but the beneficial effect of medications decrease over time. “According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, timing meals to ensure peak medication effectiveness is important to allow patients to have the most satisfactory experience, both in terms of getting the nutrition their bodies need and in doing as much as they can to feed themselves. Since the satisfaction of our clients is our top priority, we work with families and caregivers to schedule meals and medication dosages appropriately,” explained Katie Roper, VP of Health Care Strategy & Partnerships at Home Care Assistance.
“We are excited to kick off this partnership with Home Care Assistance and provide research findings that will help inform care plans,” said John L. Lehr, CEO of the Parkinson’s Foundation. “Partnerships like this one are part of our mission to make life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure.”
