Case Study: Supporting Arthur with Parkinson’s home care
Arthur is 76 years old and lives with his wife Maisie. He has Parkinson’s disease and needs help getting dressed, eating meals and taking medications. An hourly care agency had been supporting Arthur but the visiting times varied a lot, making his medication regime hard to maintain. Arthur’s son turned to the Parkinson’s service of The Good Care Group.
Our specialist Parkinson’s service
We provided Arthur with 24-hour live-in care by professional carers employed by The Good Care Group and expertly trained by Parkinson’s UK.
A bespoke 24 hour care service was designed to support Arthur's needs delivered by a consistent team of two professional carers. Through providing a consistent, carefully monitored care service, we ensured that Arthur maintained his physiotherapy exercises and that his medication programme was carefully managed. This had far reaching benefits for Arthur's mobility and independence.
