What to expect

Because Parkinson's disease symptoms vary between people, you should assess your daily routine to figure out which home care products can help heighten your sense of independence. As a start, it may be wise to invest in Parkinson's care aids that assist with common symptoms.

Parkinson's disease should not keep you from feeling comfortable in your own home. Optimize home safety with grab bars in the bathroom, bed rails in the bedroom and beveled-edge mats that minimize trip hazards for you and your guests.

Mobility trouble should not stop you from navigating your home with confidence. Whether you prefer a foldable travel cane, a compact walker or a lightweight rollator, there are many mobility products for Parkinson's that can enhance your daily activities and complement your style.

Prepare Your Home

Being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease is life-changing. The little things that make up daily routines may seem more difficult as the condition progresses. However, these changes do not have to and should not take away your sense of independence. There are many daily living aids available that will help you complete everyday tasks.

Dressing aids such as button hooks and zipper pulls can make getting ready in the morning easier for individuals who lack dexterity, have tremors and difficulty with coordination and balance.

Bathing can be a breeze with the right tools, from shower seats to long-handle sponge kits.

If you have always loved cooking, you do not have to give up your culinary passion because of difficulty with grip or tremors when you invest in items such as a cutting board with a pivoting knife or the rocking T knife.

A big part of living with Parkinson's disease is finding the best tools to help you continue living independently with a greater sense of confidence. As your symptoms change, look into new home care products that help you tend to every day's tasks.
