Finding a carehome for someone with parkinsons but not with dementia

Hi, I’m hoping someone can help me find a carehome for my mum which caters for someone with Parkinsons who needs some help with mobility and basic tasks and gets very tired but is mentally very astute and wants to interact with other similar people. The carehome she is currently in does not seem to be able to provide this. I’d welcome any advice from other carers or people who are in residential care.

Hi Cathy, and welcome to the Forum. Before this lovely community weighs in with their valuable experiences, we wanted to officially welcome you to the group. Welcome! And of course, in case you didn’t know, you can find lots of resources on our website at Parkinsons.org.uk – like this page here with some general advice on finding carers and care homes. Also, if you’d like to speak to a trained support specialist, feel entirely welcome to call us at 0808 800 0303.
Best of luck and best wishes!
