Disease Specific Care

Parkinson’s and other Movement Disorders

Parkinson’s Disease is a chronic, progressive, neurological disease that mainly affects movement. People with Parkinson’s disease often exhibit a “shuffling” gait, tremor of the arms and legs when they are resting, muscle stiffness, and stooped posture. Some individuals also have cognitive problems. Personal care, medication management, and exercise must all be taken into consideration with the care of clients with Parkinson’s Disease.

We assist Parkinson’s Clients in the following areas:

Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. NeuroCare Specialty Home Care can provide care through all stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia as an hourly or 24-hour care provider. In fact, very few individuals ever need to be placed in a care facility as long as there is a qualified caregiver providing essential in-home care.
Our services keep those who suffer from Alzheimer’s:

Traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injury, also called brain injury or head injury, occurs when a blow or jolt to the head results in damage to the brain. TBI’s range in severity from mild to severe. The most common type of brain injury, a concussion, is classified as a mild traumatic brain injury. Severe TBI’s may involve loss of consciousness for hours or weeks and can result in permanent disability. A TBI may result in mild, moderate, or severe changes in one or more areas, including thinking, speech, physical functions and social behavior.
Our services can assist individuals with TBI’s by:

Stroke Related Illness

A stroke is an injury to the brain caused when the brain’s blood supply is interrupted or greatly reduced. The brain is deprived of oxygen and nutrients, and the brain cells begin to die within minutes. For that reason, a stroke is considered a medical emergency and requires prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Our services can assist individuals who have had a stroke by:

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries begin with a blow that fractures or dislocates the vertebrae. Our trained home care aides and certified nurse’s assistants will provide care to meet the client’s specific needs and address the functional limitations experienced by individuals that have sustained a spinal cord injury. They assist clients and their family to reach the physical, mental, and emotional goals that provide the foundation for an independent life.
Our services can assist individuals who have sustained a spinal cord injury by:

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a degenerative autoimmune disease of the central nervous system causing motor dysfunctions such as problems in coordination, balance and clumsiness thus making clients at risk for falling.
Our services can assist individuals with multiple sclerosis by:

Sports Injuries-Repeated Head Trauma

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is a degenerative brain disease that results in behaviors like Alzheimer’s disease. However, according to researchers, CTE has a clear environmental cause, repeated brain trauma, rather than a genetic cause. Originally term “dementia pugilistica” otherwise known as “punch drunk.” Because repeated closed head injuries seem to be the cause of CTE, athletes involved in contact sports may be at risk including athletes in the sports of boxing, football, wrestling, rugby, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and skiing.
Our caregivers can assist individuals with symptoms of CTE by:

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, neuromuscular disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. Motor neurons, among the largest of all nerve cells, reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to muscles throughout the body. When these mother neurons die, the brain can no longer start and control muscle movement.
Our services can assist individuals with ALS by:

Cancer-Brain Tumors

A brain tumor is a collection of damaged cells that multiply out of control within the brain. Also called a neoplasm, growth, mass or lesion, a brain tumor is classified as either primary or secondary (metastatic) and can be benign or malignant.
Our services can assist individuals with brain cancer by:


Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for growth and energy. Diabetes is associated with long-term complications that affect almost every part of the body: blindness, heart and blood vessel disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputations, and nerve damage. There are 3 main types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational. The most common form, and the one to which adults and the elderly population is most prone is Type 2.

Hospice/ Palliative Care Support

End-of-Life care requires a skilled and compassionate caregiver, one who is specially trained in the care of clients with a terminal illness. We take a holistic approach that looks beyond the disease and focuses on living each day to the fullest. Our caregivers are available 24 hours a day to provide emotional, spiritual, and physical support to the entire family.

Heart Disease

Heart disease is a broad term used to describe a range of diseases that affect your heart. The various diseases that fall under the umbrella of heart disease include diseases of your blood vessels, such as coronary artery disease; hear rhythm problems (arrhythmias); heart infections; and heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects). The term “heart disease” is often use interchangeably with “cardiovascular disease.” Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke.
Our services assist individuals with heart disease by:

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems.  Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are common COPD’s.  Cigarette smoking is the most common cause of COPD.  Breathing in other kinds of irritants, like pollution, dust, or chemicals, may also cause or contribute to COPD. 

Our services can assist individuals with COPD by:

Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease is a condition in which the kidneys gradually lose their ability to function properly over time, usually months or even years. As many as one in six individuals have kidney disease, and kidney disease is 40% more common among the elderly. Chronic kidney disease is broken down into five different stages of increasing severity. Stage five chronic kidney disease is sometimes referred to as end-stage renal disease, and at this point a person’s kidneys are so bad that they require dialysis or need a transplant.
Our services can assist individuals with chronic kidney disease by:
