Can Parkinson's behavior be anticipated as it progresses? If so, what parameters of behavior are the red flags?
What are the "Standard" medications to control/combat Parkinson's?
Does Parkinson's make a patient more susceptible to other conditions?
We want to help grandpa, but he is not very helpful, and if we leave him for just a minute he becomes unruly and tries to get out of his bed or chair causing injury. I have not seen my wife and daughter for a week, because they feel to guilty to leave him. They know they must come back home tomorrow, and yet, they(and I) feel tremendous guilt for not being able to bring him home and care for him. We have neither the finances or ability to do that. My wife is 2X Cancer survivor with RA, and I have degenerative arthritis, so we can not even transfer him from chair to bed.
I need to know everything I can find out about this disease, and how others cope and deal with it so we can be better prepared to help him. I know we are limited on what we can do, but we have to try because we are all he has to rely on. His family will have nothing to do with him because of some family stuff from decades ago, how ridiculous!
Anyone who can help us will be such a blessing not just to us, but to him also. God puts those in our path that we need when we need them, and I am certain there is one or many who will be out there to help our hurting hearts. Blessings & Tender Mercy Through Christ Jesus!
