Paraquat and Parkinson’s – A Guide on Caring for Individuals With Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disease with no cure. It was thought to be genetic in origin, but information coming out from studies over the past decade has shown that it may have environmental causes, specifically with regard to toxic exposure of chemicals such as artificial herbicides like Paraquat. Living with Parkinson’s is difficult and emotionally taxing, and the caregiver may have a hard time getting used to the unpredictable course of the disease. Parkinson’s affects a part of the brain that is responsible for movement, memory and motivation, which is controlled by neurons that produce dopamine, a neurochemical that is abundant in the brain. Once these neurons start to die off, it is hard to regenerate them, which explains the progressive decline in health suffered by individuals with this condition. If you or a loved one was a farm worker especially in states such as California and Texas, your Parkinson’s may not be a fluke occurrence, but a direct consequence of exposure to Paraquat, something we can help you get legal compensation for.

Caring Guide for People Living With Parkinson’s Disease

  1. Modify The Home

There will come a time when it won’t be possible for a Parkinson’s disease patient won’t be able to walk in a graceful manner, meaning that they will be more prone to falling. To this end, you want to add railings in the house as well as stairway carpeting and even a mechanized car lift to help take the patient up and down the stairs as needed.

  1. Home Décor

Because individuals with Parkinson’s may struggle with fine motor skills, it is important that items such as vases and lamps be placed on high furniture ledges away from hands that may tip them over. In addition, space furniture out in a sufficient manner in order to help the individual move around the home with ease.

  1. Attend Doctor’s Appointments With Loved One

It is vital to educate yourself on the various stages of the disease so you’re not sidelined and are able to make changes before these symptoms shows up, or the disease gets worse. To this end, attend all doctors’ appointments and ask as many questions as possible so you have a realistic and complete picture of the disease.
