Parkinson’s care residents receive help with daily needs.
Here, residents with Parkinson’s receive help with daily needs, such as preparing meals and going to the doctor.

In addition, we provide interactive games and wellness programming to promote a healthy lifestyle – both intellectually and physically.
According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, only one percent of individuals over 60 are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Because the symptoms generally come on slowly over time and there’s no certain test for the disease, it is not always properly diagnosed. However by getting proper care and treatment for loved ones who may have Parkinson’s, it’s possible to reduce symptoms associated with the disease and provide comfort.
The specialized support you’re looking for.
Individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease may have trouble walking, talking or handling daily activities that require movement. Their face or hands may tremble, and they may experience rigidity in joints and muscles. Other symptoms include problems chewing and swallowing, sleep disruptions, depression and dementia.
As the disease progresses, individuals with Parkinson’s may require memory support services to help with the effects of dementia. Memory support at The Fountains of Hope ensures residents continue to experience the highest quality of life while living in a private, secure and homelike environment.
