Parkinson’s Disease or PD is a neurodegenerative disorder; it may progress slowly but worsens over time. Symptoms in the advanced stages of this disease can include slowed movements, tremors, and memory loss. Many sufferers find themselves increasingly dependent on their caregivers as their condition declines. No cure for PD has been discovered, but medications are available to reduce the effects of its symptoms.
Significant memory loss is not caused by normal aging alone but usually indicates an underlying disease or disorder. Palm Beach Neurological Center offers a FREE Screening to those who have experienced signs of memory loss.

Parkinson’s Disease is a common degenerative neurological disorder with a specific etiology and a unique set of signs and symptoms including tremor, stiffness, slowed movements and poor balance. Though there are cases of young people getting Parkinson’s Disease and even the very rare occasion of children affected, it usually strikes the older population more frequently with the age of 60 years and increasing in frequency after that.
