Wake up and get out of bed, shower and dressed, fixed breakfast and move forward with your day. For most, these tasks are taken for granted.
For people with Parkinson’s disease, however, these Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) present more of a challenge. Often, disability is less about the inability to stand or walk, and more about those tiny activities that used to come so easily.
Allegiance Home Health caregivers can be the difference between frustration and a fulfilling life. If you have trouble with any of these ADLs, we are here to help.
- Medication Management including Set Up
- Meal Preparation & Meal Planning

Our non-medical caregivers include Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and Home Health Aides (HHAs) who have not only received extensive screenings and background checks but have specialized training in caring for people with Parkinson’s. Through the Sapphire Parkinson’s Care program our caregivers are trained and then have to pass a rigorous written competency test on Parkinson’s and then pass a hands-on laboratory test concerning techniques for caring for people with Parkinson’s. You can be assured you are receiving a caregiver who possesses the ability to successfully care for you or your loved one with Parkinson’s.
Allegiance also provides licensed Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists to train the patient and family members to perform activities of daily living (ADL’s) in a more functional and efficient manner. We provide therapists with the skills to specifically address Parkinson’s related symptoms that are interfering with completing daily activities. Our expertise in Parkinson’s Disease shows in our track record of improving function which allows more independence and confidence with daily activities.
If Parkinson’s disease is limiting your ability to maintain a rich and fulfilled daily life, let us give you the helping hands you need. Please call Allegiance today at (561) 367-0711.
