Parkinson’s Home Care
in Leicester

Parkinson’s Disease can be daunting for the person living with the disease and those who love them. However, it is not something you have to face alone. Parkinson’s home care services and support can make a significant difference to the quality of your life and those around you. Receiving help at home can mean that many day-to-day activities can continue in a more safe, productive, and more enjoyable manner than without care.


Whilst Parkinson’s disease can be a challenging condition to manage, many people with Parkinson’s can remain in their homes with the right care. Caring for someone with Parkinson’s requires a care team that includes a specialist in Parkinson’s care, as well as mental health professionals who can provide emotional support. This is where Aspire UK is here for you.

What is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disorder. This means that it affects the brain and symptoms develop and increase over time. In 2020, approximately 145, 000 people were living with this disease in the UK, and as the fastest growing neurological condition globally, that number is steadily increasing. The cause is not understood at the moment, though environmental factors and genetics are believed to be components.

There is a chemical messenger, also known as a neurotransmitter, which controls emotional responses, the feeling of pain and pleasure, and movement. If the brain cells that produce this become impaired, Parkinson’s can develop, and as more of these cells die and less dopamine is produced, and the condition and its symptoms progress.

The Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

There are over forty symptoms that can be experienced by people with Parkinson’s, but the way the condition presents and the speed of which it is progresses can be different from person to person. There is currently no cure, but there are a range of treatments and support available that can help to manage the condition.

Some of the more common symptoms that affect people with Parkinson’s include the following:

Movement-related symptoms, also known as motor symptoms:

  • Tremors, which are typically most prominent while at rest.
  • Balance and gait issues, which are known as postural instability.
  • Stiffness in the limbs.
  • Paucity and slowness, which are called bradykinesia and hypokinesia.
Non-motor symptoms:

  • Lower, breathier, softer or more hoarse voice.
  • Orthostatic hypotension and dizziness.
  • Standing in a more hunched, stooped position.
  • Sleep disorders.
  • Reduced or loss of sense of smell.
  • Constipation.
  • Depression.
  • Anxiety.
  • Apathy.
  • Hallucinations.

Parkinson’s Care at Home

When extra assistance is needed, whatever the reason may be, most people would like to stay in their own familiar environment for as long as possible. Receiving care at home means you can continue to do a lot of what you want and need to do, while improving your safety and independence. This service can also reduce stress for your loved ones, knowing that you are being looked after.

A care plan should be established that includes strategies for managing symptoms such as tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Specialist care may also be required for advanced symptoms or complications, such as speech and swallowing problems, and medication adjustments.

In addition to physical care, it’s important to prioritize mental health for both the person with Parkinson’s and their caregivers. Support groups, therapy, and respite care can all help to reduce caregiver stress and improve overall well-being.

With the right care and support, people with Parkinson’s can remain in their homes and maintain their quality of life. A comprehensive care team and care plan are crucial components of successful home care for Parkinson’s patients.

Our high-quality home care for people living with Parkinson’s can involve overnight, live-in carer, temporary, permanent, and respite care. You can control what services you receive, right down to rest and mealtimes.

FAQs About Parkinson’s Care

Our services mean that you can custom the support you receive to suit you and your family. This may mean that you would like carers to provide around the clock, regular care such as showering and meal provision, or a temporary support worker while a family member is busy. You can discuss with us the level of care you want and need, and our caring, friendly, and experienced team will work hard to provide the best quality care possible.

We provide live-in options that involve a carer living with you in your home to provide regular care. Overnight services can involve on-call care or waking care, which involves a support worker remaining awake during set hours.

Aspire UK does offer respite care so that people who usually care for you, such as a spouse, can take time for themselves to recharge or catch up with things they need to do. This may be when they want to go away, for example, and a carer will come to your home to provide assistance.

Because Parkinson’s is a progressive disease, the need for care can differ for everyone. You may be worried that it is becoming unsafe for your loved one to be home alone as their balance and movement deteriorate, for example. Their interaction with others may be reduced, causing loneliness and reclusiveness. In this case,  can be beneficial to facilitate social outings or even to just have a cuppa and a chat.
