Parkinson’s disease is a condition that affects the central nervous system by lowering dopamine levels and impairing the motor system. Common symptoms of Parkinson’s begin with a tremor in one hand, and eventually lead to other movement problems such as stiff muscles, poor coordination, or a shuffling gait. Symptoms affecting the rest of the body include sleepiness, memory loss, nasal issues, depression, weight loss, or changes in speech. Caregivers can support Parkinson’s individuals by helping with daily activities, medication reminders, watching for signs of choking,and encouraging regular movement/exercise.
