Care Pros to deliver expert knowledge and care directly to people with Parkinson’s disease at home
Honor™ (www.JoinHonor.com), a leader in high-quality home care for older adults, today announced an innovative new partnership with the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF), the country’s most trusted source of information and resources for people with Parkinson’s disease and their families. Honor will license NPF proprietary care guidance. This partnership gives Honor a unique advantage to train its Care Professionals using NPF care expertise—and to provide superior personalized non-medical care to clients with Parkinson’s.
In addition to NPF-informed training for Parkinson’s care, Honor Care Pros will be equipped with the Honor Care Pro App, containing the Foundation’s content and detailed recommendations for how to deliver long-term home care to their clients.
“This is part of a continued effort to partner with the best minds in disease-related care and an amazing opportunity for Honor to bring the National Parkinson Foundation’s expert knowledge directly into homes through our Honor Care Pro App,” says Seth Sternberg, Co-founder and CEO of Honor. “This relationship—similar to what we established in March with the American Cancer Society—gives Honor a real advantage and greater capabilities to provide personalized care.”
“The National Parkinson Foundation is pleased to collaborate with Honor Home Care to make life better for people with Parkinson’s and their families,” said Paul R. Blom, Interim CEO of the National Parkinson Foundation.
“I am very happy to know that my wife’s Care Pros will know even more about symptoms of Parkinson’s before they even arrive at the home,” says Honor client Alan C. “They currently help Toby stay active. She calls them her assistants because they help her get ready for exercise class, drive her to appointments, and make a big difference in her ability to live the best life she can with Parkinson’s.”
