Depending on the nature and the scope of the disease, individuals with neurological disorders can have a wide range of needs. Those living with an advanced-stage illness may require around-the-clock palliative care and highly specialized support, while others may need only basic assistance or personal care on a part-time basis.

BrightStar Care Carlsbad specializes in caring for individuals living with neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s care, dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis, and our goal is to help you overcome the physical and emotional challenges you face in meeting your loved one’s unique needs.

Comprehensive Care and Support

We offer a comprehensive system of support, so you and your family can provide the best quality of care for your loved one and make the most of the time you have together.

Caring for a loved one with a neurological disorder can be a challenge, especially as confusion, disorientation, and physical limitations develop. We provide our clients with a care plan tailor-fit to their specific needs and preferences, while also encouraging and preserving health, dignity, and happiness.

Our neurological disorder care approach focuses on:

Safe Environment
We help our clients maintain a safe environment, identifying hidden hazards in the home and making recommendations for enhanced safety measures, such as installing stability bars in the bathroom.

Brain Stimulating Activities
Our specially trained care professionals engage clients in intellectually stimulating activities, such as reading books, playing cards, and doing puzzles. We also take the time to listen and learn about the things our clients enjoy, and create custom activities that will be familiar for them.

Daily Routines
Routines are an important part of the care plan for anyone living with cognitive impairments. They can be helpful in prompting recall and memory and in managing the unpredictability of the disease. BrightStar Care care professionals also manage client appointments and schedule activities to help them learn and maintain a routine.

Optimize Abilities
One of the best treatments for individuals with neurological disorders is the ability to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, such as going for a walk in the park or riding in the car to get ice cream. These activities can help optimize abilities and independence, boost mood, and enhance quality of life.

Benefits of in-home neurological care include:

  • Freedom to remain in a familiar environment
  • Ability to enjoy all the comforts of home
  • Personalized one-on-one care
  • Peace of mind
  • Reduced risk of re-hospitalizations

Neurological disorders are often characterized by a decrease in cognitive abilities, and our care services in Carlsbad are specifically designed to accommodate every stage. From the immobility of Parkinson’s and ALS to the memory loss and disorientation of Alzheimer’s and dementia, quality of life and safety are always top of mind.

Our qualified and compassionate home care professionals in Carlsbad support:

  • Activities to stimulate cognitive skills, memory, and physical activity
  • Daily routines to promote a soothing environment and prompt recall
  • Proper nutrition and hydration
  • Personal care for cleanliness, hygiene, and health

A Note About Parkinson's:  Specialized Home Care Makes A Real Difference

According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, almost one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Men are 1.5 times more likely than women to get PD, and about 60,000 more people are diagnosed with PD each year.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for PD, which is a neurological disorder that affects people’s motor and cognitive skills, and which worsens over time. However, with physical therapy, medications, and technology, people living with Parkinson’s can continue living fulfilling lives.
At BrightStar, we care for men and women of varying ages who are living with Parkinson’s disease. Our care team works with the client and any family caregivers to create a care plan, and we match each client with home care aides who have the skill set to care for them.

OurParkinson’s care and expertise include:

Supporting Physical And Mental Health

  • Encouraging exercise, which helps with strength, balance, memory, and overall well-being

  • Social connections and engagement with other people to help them feel connected to their support system as the disease progresses.

  • Monitoring changes in symptoms and potential side effects from medications (which are common).

  • Monitoring mental health.  A large percentage of people with Parkinson’s develop depression, and untreated depression can actually worsen other Parkinson’s symptoms.
    So, our care staff look for those symptoms and can connect you with mental health providers.

Advocacy And Education

  • Acting as a healthcare advocate, if needed, to ensure you are getting regular medical attention from a neurologist who specializes in Parkinson’s. We also ensure the client can implement the physician’s recommendations, and that the physician gets the information they need from the client (such as symptom tracking).

  • Connecting clients with community resources such as the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego.

  • Offering Parkinson’s education and support to family caregivers.
