Family Directed Home Care knows what Parkinson’s care requires

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. In the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, your face may show little or no expression. Your arms may not swing when you walk. Speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time.
As Parkinson’s progresses, one will come to rely on others more and more. Family Directed caregiver can help ease the transition to higher care needs and can also make sure your loved one ages in place. Whether it is companionship or more intensive personal care, your Family Directed Caregiver can do most everything.
When you use Family Directed to hire and manage caregivers, you have more control over the process and information about the care being provided. You can meet caregivers before you hire them. You can set an hourly rate that is fair to you and to the caregiver. Once you’ve found the right caregiver, our mobile app will help you understand when and how care is being provided. The Family Directed app will let you schedule shifts, approve payments, and review care reports.

How Family Directed Home Care works for you

We provide families with the tools and knowledge to manage the entire care process on their own, creating a more affordable, transparent, and reliable method of care.
1

2

Enjoy better care for less money

The hourly cost of care is negotiated by you and your caregiver, but don't worry each caregiver tells you a target hourly rate. You can use this rate as a starting place. Since there isn't a traditional home care agency involved - the total cost is much less. Working directly with a caregiver can eliminate up to 30% of the costs usually charged by an agency.
