We happily serve residents of San Marino, Alhambra, Arcadia, Temple City, Pasadena, Altadena, La Canada-Flintridge, Rosemead, Sierra Madre, Monterey Park, Los Angeles and Orange County.

    Caregiving Services we offer that are specific to Parkinson’s Care are:
Medication Reminders: Many people report that their Parkinson’s flare ups are toughest in the morning. This may be due to the gap between last medication dose caused by sleep. One useful technique is to set your alarm for an hour before you need to be awake and take your medicine before continuing to sleep.

Nourishing and Easy to Eat Meals: Uncontrollable hand tremors often make eating with Parkinson’s a distressing experience. Our Home Health Aides are aware of the difficulty and can prepare healthy meals consisting of vegetables, wholesome meals, low fat cheeses, sliced bananas and other healthy finger foods. For those with limited chewing capacities, our Senior Care Aides will prepare homemade soups, fresh juices, smoothies, egg whites, yogurt and other soft foods.

Physical Therapy and Exercise: Our Live-in Home Health Professionals and Elder Companions can extend your insurance-provided physical therapy through observation. Stretching exercise, such as Pilates has been known to provide some relief as well. We can provide transportation to movement classes.

Soothing Techniques: Sucking on ice cubes with lemon juice before a meal reduces swelling in the throat and improves saliva production. Tilting your head down as you swallow improves the process. Drinking out of sports bottles reduces spills. Replacing difficult to handle gadgets with those that have large buttons, rubber grips and sturdy unbreakable plastic can improve function within the household.

Diane S. of Downey, CA say's:

Andrew cared for my father for several months, he was very professional and helpful. He showed tremendous compassion for my father who had progressive dementia. He always tried to engage him and give him as much enjoyment as he could. Andrew always showed respect and patience even during those difficult times. Andrew was also a great help to my mother during this time. He ran errands and helped with household chores. Friends and other family members often commented on how fortunate we were to have someone as caring and dedicated as Andrew to help us.
