Parkin­son’s facts

Did you know?

Parkin­son’s can progress at a dif­fer­ent rate for each per­son.

As symp­toms change, med­i­ca­tion will need to be ad­justed.

As the dis­ease pro­gresses, non-mo­tor symp­toms may also ap­pear, such as de­pres­sion, dif­fi­culty swal­low­ing, sex­ual prob­lems or cog­ni­tive changes.

It is im­por­tant to find a doc­tor who is knowl­edge­able about Parkin­son’s, ideally a neu­rol­o­gist.

By work­ing with a health­care team, a treat­ment plan can be cre­ated that will meet the per­son’s in­di­vid­ual needs.
