Local Senior Living Community Reaches Out to Parkinson’s Patients
Royal Palm Retirement Centre Staff Caters to Growing Population
“The United States has more than 1.5 million residents with Parkinson’s disease and 50,000 new Americans are diagnosed with it each year,” explains Mark Ackerman, executive director of Royal Palm. “This is an obvious cause for concern in our community as we see a growing number of our residents learning to live with Parkinson’s. Our staff can readily identify and adapt to the needs of these individuals to ensure they receive the quality of care they deserve.”
According to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, the prevalence of Parkinson’s is on the rise, particularly with seniors. Of individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s, only 4 percent are under the age of 50. The same research found that the incidence of Parkinson’s in Georgia is projected to increase by 31 percent by 2025 as baby boomers age.
