Cognitive symptoms aren’t easy to think or talk about. Not everyone with Parkinson’s experiences these changes, and how and when they arise can be different for each person. But what many patients and families have in common is worry about the possibility of these symptoms.
To learn more about thinking and memory changes and steps you can take to boost brain health and manage symptoms, watch the latest Ask the MD video. And for more on this topic, download MJFF’s free guide to Navigating Cognitive Changes in Parkinson’s Disease.
