What is Parkinson’s Disease Dementia?

Parkinson’s Disease Dementia is characterized by the gradual loss of thinking and reasoning in people with Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative condition known for uncontrolled or slowed-down movements. The condition may not necessarily affect every person with Parkinson’s and generally develops one year or more after the initial diagnosis.

Recognising the Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease Dementia

Common symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease dementia include:

  • Problems with memory 
  • Poor concentration and judgement 
  • Speech-related abnormalities 
  • Hallucinations     
  • Being delusional or paranoid 
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Irritability
What causes Parkinson’s Disease Dementia?

Parkinson’s Disease is characterized by the build-up of alpha-synuclein protein, forming Lewy bodies that lead to the gradual loss of nerve cells in the substantia nigra. Initially affecting movements, it later disrupts other brain areas, impacting memory, thinking, and reasoning.

Diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease Dementia

There is no specific test for diagnosing Parkinson’s disease dementia. However, if a person has already been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, their progression will be monitored to identify any dementia-related symptoms.

Management / Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease Dementia at IBS Hospital

At IBS Hospital, our approach to treating Parkinson’s disease dementia focuses on symptom management since there is no permanent cure. We offer various treatment options, including:

  • Cholinesterase inhibitors to address hallucinations, sleep-related issues, and behavioural abnormalities.
  • Carbidopa-levodopa to slow down the progression of movement problems caused by Parkinson’s.
  • Deep brain stimulation to improve brain activity and reduce symptom intensity.
  • SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) for managing depression.
  • Clonazepam and melatonin to treat REM sleep disorder.
