By Joanne Pizzuto
Parkinson's disease is a condition that can have a significant impact on the quality of life of seniors; however, there are ways to minimize the effects of this illness through the right therapy and treatment. Recently, the professionals at Always Best Care who provide home care in Greensboro, Burlington,  High Point and the surrounding areas, have turned to R.O.S. Therapy Systems to provide support to elderly individuals who have Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, or dementia through the R.O.S. Play Therapy System. This resource calls upon a range of activity boards and games to assist seniors with the following:
·       Expressing creativity
·       Memory Cues
·       Self-worth
·       Pride
·       Esteem
·       Orientation regarding time, place, and people
·       Motivation
·       Reality testing
·       Stimulation of interest in the environment
·       Stimulation of tactile, visual, and auditory senses
·       Decision making
·       Enjoyment

About R.O.S. Therapy System
In 2010, this therapy system was created to support the needs of Roger Silknitter, who had fought Parkinson's disease and dementia for 25 years. Through the design of this particular therapeutic approach, seniors are able to achieve a higher quality of life because they are able to engage in activities that both boost cognitive and motor functions and are entertaining. Because the quality of life and health of elderly individuals are top priorities at Always Best Care, the senior care professionals at this organization have adopted this therapy system to benefit the elderly individuals they care for.
The bundle package that the home care providers at this organization share with seniors includes a console and several different game boards, such as solitaire, tic tac toe, and mini puzzles. With a wedge cushion to support the console, elderly individuals are able to engage in this form of therapy easily—allowing them to get the maximum benefits possible.

Ask Your Loved One's Care Provider about the R.O.S. Therapy System
If your elderly loved one suffers from Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, or dementia and they are not already using the R.O.S. Therapy System it is a great idea to ask their home care provider if they can incorporate this therapeutic resource into your senior's care plan. This particular form of therapy has shown positive results in numerous seniors, who are able to experience a higher quality of life through its support.
