Specialized care for Parkinson's & other movement disorders

Why Choose Daylesford’s Specialized Parkinson’s Care?

Nestled amidst the picturesque Main Line of Philadelphia, Daylesford Crossing stands as a beacon of excellence in Parkinson’s care. We offer a comprehensive and personalized approach to living with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. This is not merely nursing home care or long-term care for Parkinson’s; it’s a unique living experience designed to promote your independence and enhance your quality of life.

Our care team empowers you to maintain and improve your mobility with the support of our Move for Life physical and occupational therapists and movement specialists. Our nutritional team includes a dining director, registered dietitians and nutritionists to help you make the best food choices at all stages of your Parkinson’s journey. And each person who works here is dedicated to helping you live each day to its fullest.

A Custom Approach to Care for Parkinson’s Disease

Our skilled Parkinson’s care team meets you where you are in your journey and customizes every aspect of daily life to address your unique needs. Your care begins with a custom-designed personal care plan created specifically for you. This plan is developed by a coordinated care team consisting of a physician or nurse practitioner, nutritionist, psychiatric nurse practitioner and caregivers.

Once the plan is in place, our physical and occupational therapists and movement specialists will support you in improving mobility, function, posture, gait, balance, speech, and fine motor skills and maintaining them at the highest possible level. We also work to reduce rigidity and tremors.

Certified in Specialized Care

At Daylesford Crossing, you’re in qualified, capable hands. Our Move for Life therapists are certified in LSVT BIG®, which trains people with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions to improve movements, whether they are “small motor” tasks or “large motor” skills like walking and balancing. Since LSVT BIG treatment is customized to each person’s specific needs and goals, it can help regardless of the stage or severity of one’s condition.

We also have access to therapists who are certified in LSVT LOUD® speech treatment. LSVT LOUD trains people with Parkinson’s to use their voice at a more normal loudness level while speaking. This proven treatment helps people “recalibrate” their perceptions so they know how loud or soft they sound to others – and in turn, they may be able to communicate more effectively.

Taking Charge of Symptoms Through Fitness

Our holistic approach extends to our exercise philosophy, where we incorporate physical movement into your overall care plan. We hold scheduled classes taught by physical and occupational therapists in our easily accessible gym. A caregiver helps you practice the exercises learned in the comfort and privacy of your apartment. Read more about the link between exercise and cognition. And see how residents living with Parkinson’s at Daylesford Crossing have benefited from incorporating exercise into their daily living activities.

Unleashing the Power of Food

We believe the food you eat is an important part of your treatment for Parkinson’s disease or other movement disorders, so we take a targeted approach to the nutrition in your diet. Our registered dietitians, nutritionists and dining director develop delicious menu options to support your overall wellness. We provide explanations for why certain foods are better for your condition than others, but ultimately, the choice at each meal or snack time is always yours.

Beyond the Physical: Supporting Your Mental Health
