Behavioral Changes and Parkinson's

Posted on May 04, 2018

Caregivers and those living with Parkinson's face cognitive, physical and emotional changes. People deal with it in different ways: adapt, react, or freeze. Read how other people are handling this.

On MyParkinsonsTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with Parkinson's disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Behavioral issues are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about behavioral issues:

Mom suddenly stopped talking to my sister on the phone and got her walker and proceeded to her bed. When asked if she was finished talking it was as if she didn't remember that she was even on the phone.

Ask your loved ones to inform you gently if the behavior changes are ongoing. Try to see why the situation has left you angry or upset.

I am focusing on all of the positives about my husband and trying to ignore behaviors that are as a result of physical/cognitive decline.

Here are some question and answer threads about behavioral issues:

Is anyone suffering from compulsive behavior?

How do I increase my fathers quality of life?

Has anyone else noticed an increase in obsessive behavior?

Can you relate?
