Parkinson's Evaluation

We had the big evaluation yesterday and I think it went very well. The occupational therapist said that she believed he needed (and would benefit from) therapy. They can't really do much with his sensory perception, but she said they can provide assistance in finding ways to help him function.

The physical therapist said she believed that he would benefit from in-patient care at least for a week or two, and then continue on a three times per week as an outpatient.

Now we just have to wait and see what insurance determines.

Hope he can get the services that he will benefit from and the insurance agrees with the therapists' recommendations.

Hopefully this is positive news for you both. Anything at all that can help would be great. As you say, let's hope the insurance comes up trumps. Blessings.

Thinking of you both sweetheart. Hope there are some answers soon.

Is there some types of meds for Parkinson's I wonder.

Would those benefit too - I am sure you have already thought of that. Just curious.

You know where I am [offline] if you need me. Hugs and love.
