An Introduction to Parkinson Disease

Parkinson Disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement, with symptoms that develop and worsen over time. In the initial stages, a person with Parkinson’s may experience a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. But while a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson’s, the condition may also cause shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination.

Parkinson’s symptoms and signs may vary from person to person, and often go unnoticed in its early stages. Symptoms often begin on one side of your body and usually remain worse on that side, even after symptoms begin to affect both sides. Besides the physical symptoms, an individual with Parkinson’s may sometimes experience mental and behavioural changes, sleep problems, depression, memory difficulties, and fatigue.

Parkinson Disease affects thousands of Singaporeans

As the second most common neurodegenerative disorder in Singapore after Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson Disease affects 3 in every 1000 people above 50 years old. While it is more common among the older population, this condition can also affect younger adults. As our population ages, the number of people with Parkinson Disease is expected to increase as well.

Caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s

Receiving a Parkinson Disease diagnosis is never easy, not only for the patient but also their family and loved ones. It can be tough mentally and physically knowing that they will inevitably lose control over their movement. As Parkinson’s develops over time, your loved one will need more support with activities of daily living. Having a loved one by their side along their Parkinson’s journey can be comforting.

While there is no cure available, there are many ways we can slow the progression of Parkinson’s Disease and improve the quality of life of our loved one living with the condition.
