Better Care for Loved Ones with Parkinson’s
At Honor, we are always looking for smarter, better ways to provide personalized care for families and their loved ones. That’s why we’ve partnered with the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF), the most trusted source of Parkinson’s information, resources, and care.
Through this partnership, Honor Care Professionals receive additional training based on NPF’s proprietary care guidance so they can deliver the highest level of in-home care for people with Parkinson’s disease. That expert training is what makes this unique partnership so powerful.
Over one million Americans currently live with Parkinson’s disease. Honor Care Pros are ready to help, bringing experience and expert knowledge right into the homes of people with Parkinson’s.
“This is part of a continued effort to partner with the best minds in disease-related care and an amazing opportunity for Honor to bring the National Parkinson Foundation’s expert knowledge directly into our clients’ homes,” said Seth Sternberg, Co-founder and CEO of Honor. “This relationship gives Honor a real advantage and greater capabilities to provide personalized care.”
Honor Care Pros provide better Parkinson’s care.
Parkinson’s is a condition requiring many different medications to slow the progression of the disease and to help manage the symptoms. Honor Care Pros can help with timely medication reminders to ensure that pain and other side-effects are managed appropriately.
Exercise and staying active is crucial for people with Parkinson’s. Honor Care Pros can support regular exercise and activity, which helps fight muscle stiffness, weakness, balance problems, and other mobility changes. Staying active also can help alleviate constipation, a common symptom and source of discomfort for people with Parkinson’s.
Personal Care and Comfort
People with advanced PD require varying levels of physical assistance for their comfort and safety. Honor Care Pros can assist with things a family caregiver may not be able to do — repositioning, lifting, and transferring — for their loved one. Our Care Pros can help in other ways too, such as bathing, personal care, and toileting, areas where family caregivers may not be comfortable or would prefer the help of a skilled care professional.
Honor Care Pros also help with many other non-medical tasks, including mobility care to reduce fall risks, transportation to and from doctor’s appointments or lunch with friends, grocery shopping and healthy meal preparation, light housekeeping, plus good conversation and companionship. We’re here when you need us — and now our Care Pros are better prepared than ever to help families living with Parkinson’s.
What makes us different also makes us better.
Honor is proud to join the National Parkinson Foundation in our shared mission to improve the quality of care — and the quality of life — for the many families living with Parkinson’s disease.
