Even in advanced stages, our clients with Parkinson’s are able to continue living in the familiar environment of home. Access to favorite foods, pets, belongings and neighbors brings a sense of connection that makes their lives more enjoyable.

Extensive Training & Ongoing Education for Senior Care

Not all caregivers are equipped to care for clients with Parkinson’s or post-stroke conditions. At Home Care Assistance of Greater Chicago, we require all caregivers to complete extensive training on proper elder home care techniques through our Home Care Assistance University. 

With a thorough understanding of both mental and physical symptoms of various conditions including ALS, multiple sclerosis and cancer recovery, our caregivers can effectively assist older adults with day-to-day needs including bathing, grooming, dressing, therapeutic exercises, and more. Our compassionate caregivers also are trained in hospice and palliative care wherever you need it.
