Parkinson’s Program Services

Parkinsons is treatable -pngParkinson’s Disease is known to be both chronic and progressive. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, chances are you will need assistance with the changes that need to be made in the home environment and daily routine as well as the monitoring of symptoms and medications and coordinating multi-disciplined therapies. Regal’s care managers and professional caregivers understand how frustrating PD can be for sufferers and their families. In addition to assistance with the activities of daily living, Regal can help you navigate assessments, symptoms, therapy and medications, as well as insurance. We are first and foremost advocates for the patient’s quality of life!

Once Regal is engaged, an assessment is made and a plan of care is established, then it is continually evaluated for comfort and safety as well as quality of life. Regal caregivers help with bathing, dressing, meals, toileting, social activities and routine exercise. Regal nurses serve as care managers who coordinate, communicate and advocate for the patient with their physicians and therapists, identify options and resources for the patient and their family, and even assist with insurance. Regal accepts assignment of benefits from most long-term care insurance companies and can assist you in verifying and maximizing your benefits.
