How can I help someone with Parkinson's disease feel relaxed in bed?

Help the person with Parkinson's disease feel relaxed in the bedroom by implementing a few of these tips:

  • Give the person a back or leg massage.
  • Keep a favorite blanket or pillow on the bed for comfort and security. Don’t purchase new linens without checking to see if the person with Parkinson's disease likes them. Bringing unfamiliar items into the environment can be very upsetting to people with Parkinson's disease, especially those who are confused or have dementia.
  • Use a night-light or leave the bathroom or hall light on to help keep the person with Parkinson's disease oriented to where she is.
