Synergy HomeCare of West Fort Worth Observes National Parkinson’s Awareness Month

Fort Worth, TX - April 04, 2013 - ( - April is National Parkinson’s Awareness Month and Synergy HomeCare of West Fort Worth is pleased to join the effort to bring further public awareness to this debilitating disease that affects more people than multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig’s disease combined.

Parkinson’s disease is a slowly progressive neurological disorder that affects the movement of muscles and limbs. The disease kills vital nerve cells in the brain that produce the chemical dopamine, which is crucial to movement and coordination. Parkinson’s disease is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly and the Center for Disease Control rated complications from the disease as the 14th leading cause of death in the United Sates.

"We witness how living with Parkinson’s disease can be especially challenging for our clients because symptoms vary greatly between individuals and continue to worsen over time," said Peter Tourian, founder and CEO of Synergy HomeCare. "Our caregivers are trained to support clients and their families no matter the severity of symptoms and provide care that offers a sense of normalcy to everyday life."

Nearly one million people in the United States are living with Parkinson’s disease and Synergy HomeCare of West Fort Worth understands the impact the disease can have on a family. Since symptoms vary widely between each person affected by Parkinson’s, Synergy HomeCaredevelops specialized care plans based on individual need and severity of symptoms in order to help clients cope with activities of daily living made more challenging.

For clients who are unable to control normal movement due to Parkinson’s, caregivers can prepare nutritious meals, perform various household tasks, assist with personal hygiene/appearance and help with transfers from bed to wheelchair. Synergy HomeCare caregivers can also provide companionship care such as friendly and supportive conversation, light exercise and transportation to doctor’s appointments to help clients cope with the complications associated with the disease, including thinking difficulties and depression/emotional changes.
