My family has been struggling with my mom the past few months. She was diagnosed with early-onset pd 20 years ago. Over the past year…especially the last 5 months, she’s rapidly deteriorating.
She falls multiple times a day, has broken her hip and arm and yet she refuses to use her wheelchair. She’s forgetful, agitated, and has a very hard time talking.
Is this type of behavior common with PD? Refusing to let people help and denying there’s a problem?
