What Are Common Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the nervous system causing stiffness that affects movement. While the symptoms of Parkinson’s are barely noticeable at first, older adults in the later stages of the disease experience difficulties with performing even simple, manual tasks. As the condition progresses over time, the majority of affected individuals require high levels of care and assistance, provided by either family members or home care professionals.
"The Visiting Angels were a lifesaver stepping in to help care for my father who had severe scoliosis and my mother who has Parkinson's. They cooked meals, cleaned, provided companionship, shopped, did laundry and even helped care for their little dog. Always kind, professional, on time and willing to stay a few extra minutes if needed. The office staff provided flexibility in scheduling, and were always available by phone. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in their home and needing some assistance. They truly are Visiting Angels."

Once Parkinson’s disease is diagnosed, the symptoms may be very subtle in the beginning. However, as the condition gradually progresses, you can expect that your loved one’s mobility and mental functioning will be severely affected.
Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Frequent, recurring tremors
- Slow but gradual decline in mobility
- Balance issues
- Depression and/or anxiety accompanied by a sleeping disorder
- Lack of comprehension and/or delusions
Additionally, seniors with advanced Parkinson’s can develop dementia, which can interfere with reasoning and judgment and cause symptoms such as irritability, confusing and frightening hallucinations and getting lost during conversations.
