What are your goals?
You are more than a diagnosis. You have goals that you want to achieve and have contributions to make. You have a life to live — and you still can. Neurodegenerative Disorders create new challenges and barriers and you don’t have to navigate them alone. CARESPACE Health+Wellness provides access to your very own health team dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.
Get your very own health team
Dr. Almeida leads a team of regulated health professionals including Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists, Chiropractors, Dietitians, Massage Therapists, Naturopathic Doctors, Counsellors and Social Workers. The team collaborates both together and with you to develop achievable goals. With coordinated care you can track your progression, get the best evidence-based advice and support with health plans personalized for your own unique situation.
The Initial Assessment
The Initial Assessment is an intensive hour and a half appointment with Dr. Almeida that will include taking your history and completing several assessments and analysis which will result in providing you with a baseline Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) score. Based on the outcome, Dr. Almeida will provide personalized education* on topics such as drug interaction, food digestion and exercise. Where appropriate, he will also provide referrals to other members of the team for follow up visits.
A no-charge Fitness Review with a Registered Kinesiologist and no-charge Nutritional Review with a Registered Dietitian or Naturopathic Doctor are included in the price of the initial appointment. They may be scheduled with follow up visits during the first appointment and are available either in-clinic or online via TeleCARE.
*Personalized education is intended to supplement rather than supplant or replace advice from your medical doctor, neurologist or pharmacist.
Insurance and group benefits
Dr. Almeida is an educator and researcher and therefore his fees are not covered under OHIP, group benefits or other insurance plans. Most other CARESPACE services are covered under most group benefit or insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider for more information.
