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.
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
In advance or late staged Parkinson’s, seniors can also develop dementia that usually causes irritability as well as confusing and frightening hallucinations.
