Bluebird Care Slough, S. Buck & S. Wycombe’s support to you and your family
There is no cure for Parkinson's disease, however, treatment, domiciliary care and support can help to manage the symptoms. For example, medicines to increase the levels of dopamine in the brain, physiotherapy and speech therapy. Lifestyle changes can also help, such as regular exercise and good nutrition and hydration.
At Bluebird Care Slough, S. Buck & S. Wycombe, we aim to support you to live as well as possible through all of the changes to your condition. We listen to what is important to you and the goals that you wish to achieve. Together we create a domiciliary care plan that sets out how we will provide a specialised service that is tailored to your individual needs and preferences, allowing you to remain in the familiar surroundings of your own home. This might include:
- Support to continue with the social activities you enjoy
