SSM Health at Home provides unique and specialized care for patients with Parkinson's disease, a progressive disorder of the nervous system. This disease affects movement, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand and gradually progressing to stiffness or slowing of movements. Being able to move freely and easily is crucial to being able to safely perform daily routines. Our professionals can help!
Our staff is comprised of licensed clinicians including registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists. These clinicians have the skill sets needed to address your specific needs, whether that be medication management, assisting with daily activities, improving strength and movement or addressing speech and swallowing problems.
