How to navigate Parkinson’s disease

A diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease might be worrying, but you don’t need to navigate the journey alone.

Our friendly team of healthcare professionals are on hand to create a smooth transition from hospital to home.

We will support you and your family through the challenges Parkinson’s can bring.

What is Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a condition that affects your brain, and can cause symptoms like:

  • Trembling
  • Rigidity
  • Slowness of movement

It is crucial to recognise these key symptoms and seek the treatment you might need.

Other symptoms include:

  • Loss of facial expression
  • Speech problems
  • Anxiety

Most people with Parkinson’s start to develop symptoms when they are over 50.

Some people, however, first experience symptoms when they are under 40.

How is it treated?

There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s, but we offer lots of treatments aimed at reducing your symptoms and maintaining your quality of life.

Our treatment options include supportive treatments (like physiotherapy and occupational therapy) and medication.

Symptoms are usually mild in the early stages of your diagnosis.

Your symptoms must, however, be monitored and cared for should your situation change.

What can Synergy Complex Care do to help?

Parkinson’s disease is a condition that is constantly evolving, and so we understand the importance of offering tailored care services.

Our unique clinical and therapeutic care options are available to support you in your daily life and relieve any anxiety you or your family might have.

As part of our services, we offer occupational therapists who will assess your everyday living to input treatment options whilst in the comfort of your own home.

It is our belief that you maintain your independence and sustain your lifestyle and activities to ensure you have the best quality of life.
