Dementia Due to Parkinson's Disease

Dementia due to Parkinson's diseaseThe deterioration of the central nervous system because of Parkinson's disease is another cause of dementia that typically affects adults over the age of 60. Symptoms are similar to other forms of dementia, although they affect everyone differently. Some of the signs of this type of dementia are tremors, stiff muscles, lack of balance, and memory problems. If the symptoms of dementia due to Parkinson's disease appear, it is important to seek treatment to deal with them before they lead to other problems.

Symptoms of Dementia Due to Parkinson's Disease

Unlike some other forms of dementia, this type has quite a few physical as well as emotional and behavioral symptoms. Some of the physical signs of dementia due to Parkinson's disease include tremors (shaking hands, feet or other parts of the body), lack of balance, slow movements and stiff muscles. Memory and cognitive abilities are affected as well, making it difficult for people with this type of dementia to take care of themselves. If the symptoms of dementia are ignored, there may be serious implications.

  • Slow voluntary movement - standing or walking
  • Tremors - shaking hands, feet or parts of the face
  • Stiff muscles
  • Lack of balance
  • Memory problems

Depending on the person affected, there are many different dangers associated with dementia due to Parkinson's disease. First, some of the physical symptoms - tremors and problems moving - can cause a person to fall, hurting themselves. There are also many emotional problems that could result from this type of dementia when it is not treated. If the symptoms are not treated correctly, there are chances things will get worse. No matter the dangers, there are things you can do to help deal with the symptoms of dementia due to Parkinson's disease as they appear.
