I understand from research done when looking for a care home for my cousin that there are no homes specialising in caring for people with PD. She was placed in a very nice home with kind staff and well looked after. However, due to low staffing ratio she did not receive the stimulation and exercise she needed.
I understand that this was not the fault of the staff who were extremely busy, but she needed conversation and help walking with her walking aid. Physio, on a daily basis, and speech aids would have been a help.
As so many people suffer from PD surely there should be care homes available specialising in this disease. I suppose it all comes down to the question of funding. I appreciate that not all people with PD need residential care, but we all need help in one way or another on a daily basis.
Sorry, this is one of my deeper questions but it is one I can't find an answer to.
