When we found out that my mom was experiencing signs of dementia, we didn't take the news lightly. We were concerned about her well-being, and I knew that she couldn't keep living on her own. To keep her safe, I decided to enroll her in a nursing home that specialized in mental health care. She was concerned about the change at first, but as soon as she moved in, she only had positive things to say about her new digs. She loved the ability to get in touch with doctors the same day, and she was even able to make a few friends along the way. This blog is all about keeping your parents safe, happy and healthy.

Parkinson's disease has been receiving more media and medical coverage in recent years, particularly because of celebrity diagnoses raising awareness. Unfortunately, that attention has not translated well into a widespread understanding of the early signs of the disease. Although most people understand that Parkinson's disease causes tremors, there are many subtle signs that appear early in the onset of the condition. The more you can understand about the early signs, the sooner you can seek supportive care or an assisted living environment for a loved one who has it.
