Did you know?
Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year, and this number does not reflect the thousands of cases that go undetected according to the Parkinson’s Foundation
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder that leads to shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination. Symptoms usually develop slowly over years. The progression of symptoms often varies from one individual to the next due to the diversity of the disease.
A diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease brings an onslaught of emotions and fear. People don’t really know what causes this neurodegenerative brain disorder or its effects on muscle movement and control. Everyone would love to live without Parkinson’s disease, however, if you’re one of the 1 million people who have been diagnosed with this chronic condition. At Healthcare South Florida we know how troubling it can be for you and your family’s caretakers. This is why our healthcare agency has the most skilled and compassionate Parkinson’s caregivers who will do everything they can to help relieve the pain and stress of handling this unpredictable disease.
