Cognicion

La enfermedad de Parkinson (EP) se está volviendo cada vez más reconocida por sus características no motoras, incluyendo las dificultades cognitivas. Para las personas con Parkinson, estos problemas pueden ser angustiosos y estar entre los más difíciles de tratar con sus doctores y sus familias. La cognición es difícil de definir, pero por lo general se refiere a los procesos cerebrales a través de los cuáles podemos descubrir y comprender el mundo a nuestro alrededor.

Prevencion de caidas

En 1817, cuando James Parkinson escribió su ensayo acerca de la enfermedad de Parkinson (EP), él observó que, “el paciente, con solo proceder a dar muy pocos pasos, suele caer inevitablemente.” En realidad, mientras envejecemos todos podemos tener un riesgo mayor a caídas, las personas que viven con Parkinson tienen el doble de riesgo que sus pares. Las caídas a menudo ocasionan lesiones que van desde los cortes menores a las fracturas, impactando la movilidad y la calidad de vida de una persona.
