In search of caregiver information
This is my first time posting; I'm turning to this online Parkinson's-specific community in hopes of finding resources to aid in the care of my grandmother.
My maternal grandmother has Parkinson's disease, and is fairly far-along in disease progression. She is 88 years old, and has Parkinson's related dementia. She currently resides with my parents with the aid of a daytime, night time, and weekend care giver. She does require the assistance of these caregivers to facilitate movement as well as to manage her mental state, which tends to worsen as the day goes on.
We are in the difficult situation of having the daytime caretaker resign; thus, I am hoping someone might have a suggestion for a resource or network that provides at-home care for people with Parkinson's, and if possible, those specifically with dementia.
I am extremely open to any and all suggestions - our goal is to keep her at home and under our care, and hopefully avoid a nursing home situation where her care will almost certainly decrease in quality and quantity.
