While many people with Parkinson’s Disease will experience some degree of mild cognitive change, it is estimated that at any given time, about a quarter to a third of people with Parkinson’s are experiencing dementia. Dementia is a more severe decline in cognitive abilities that leads to trouble at home, at work or in social situations. The topic can be particularly distressing for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners. What should they know and what strategies can be used to cope with its effects? Find tips by joining a one-hour web seminar led by the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) and Jennifer G. Goldman, M.D.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the clinical symptoms and current research on the risks and causes of dementia in Parkinson’s Disease;
  • Discuss treatment and management strategies for dementia in Parkinson’s Disease; and,
