Living with Parkinson’s disease or caring for a loved one with the disease is unique to each situation, but we want you to know that you’re not alone. More than 60 thousand Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year, affecting one in 100 seniors. Highpoint at Stonecrest provides specialized Parkinson’s care to help with the neurological difficulties your loved one may be experiencing, tailored to each individual’s symptoms and progression.
We know it can become increasingly difficult for family members to provide specialized Parkinson’s care for a loved one as the disease progresses. At Highpoint, we personalize our support according to your loved one’s needs — above all, improving quality of life for those with the disease through Parkinson’s care that promotes physical wellness, independence and emotional well-being.
Compassionate Care In The Heart Of Florida
While each person experiences Parkinson’s differently, there are many ways maintain and improve quality of life and live well with the disease. Our thoughtfully designed community provides a safe, secure place for residents with neurological difficulties to receive help with daily needs, such as bathing, grooming, taking medications and going to the doctor.
As the voluntary movements of some individuals with Parkinson’s become slower (a symptom called bradykinesia), they may experience tremors in their limbs, face and hands, as well as rigidity in joints and muscles. Parkinson’s care at Highpoint helps to lessen the day-to-day stress of these symptoms by providing heightened safety measures, 24-hour nursing support and stimulating activities tailored to the neurological difficulties your loved one may be experiencing.
Though there is no known cure for Parkinson’s, we believe the disease can be improved at every stage through specialized, person-centered care. With both individualized support based on each person’s needs, abilities and preferences, as well as interactive programs to promote interaction and socialization, our Parkinson’s care treats not only residents’ symptoms and progression but also their state of mind.
Through Parkinson’s care at Highpoint, your loved will continue to experience an uplifting, homelike environment – as we take care of life’s daily challenges and provide increased opportunities to live life to the fullest.
