Shari Lynn’s Assessment about Parkinson’s disease states:
“Cardinal features of Parkinson’s disease are bradykinesia, resting tremor, and muscle rigidity. Some patients also have stooped posture, altered gait, dystopia, fatigue, muscle cramps, drooling, mask like facial expression, dysphasia, and speech problems. Signs and symptoms usually are asymmetric and commonly begin with a resting tremor. Over time, they grow progressively worse and more debilitating, and may include cogwheel rigidity and postural instability leading to increased risk of falls. Some patients have “freezing” episodes, which they describe as a feeling that their feet are stuck to the floor. Parkinson’s disease also causes autonomic problems, such as genitourinary and GI dysfunction, thermoregulation problems, and orthostatic hypotension. Some patients may complain of sensory symptoms, such as pain, itching, and numbness.
Psychological manifestations may include depression, dementia, memory loss, psychosis, fear, anxiety, and sleep difficulties. Patients may exhibit compulsive behaviors, such as excessive gambling, hyper sexuality, excessive eating and shopping, repetitive activities, and medication abuse.”

Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. Stroke occurs when blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts (or ruptures). When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs. The brain is an extremely complex organ that controls various body functions. If a stroke occurs and blood flow can’t reach the region that controls a particular function that part of the body won’t work as it should. (Stroke Association)
Citizens Bright Ideas Home Care does perform duties of Activities of Daily Living to patients with stroke. Sometimes the patient may need to be transferred from the wheel chair to bed, or transportation/errands, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping and personal care.
Cancer is the name given to a collection of related diseases. In all types of cancer, some of the body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into surrounding tissues. Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body, which is made into trillions of cells. When cancer develops, however, this orderly process breaks down. As cells become more and more abnormal, old or damaged cells survive when they should die, and new cells form when they are not needed. These extra cells can divide without stopping and may form growth called tumors. Cancerous tumors are malignant, which means they can spread into, or invade, nearby tissues. In addition, as these tumors grow, some cancer cells can break off and travel to distant places in the body through the blood or the lymph system and form new tumors far from the original tumor. Cancer patients require varying levels of practical assistance during the course of their illness. (National Cancer Institute)
Citizens Bright Ideas Home Care carries the necessary help for cancer patients, e.g. help with the bathroom, eating, lifting, positioning, transferring, massaging, and operating equipment and all the Activities of Daily Living and other services as required.
