Motivation and Parkinson’s Disease: A discussion on Apathy & Impulsivity
Tuesday January 26, 7:00 PM ET / 4:00 PM PT (1 hour duration)
Have you lost your ‘get up and go’? Apathy and Impulsivity can be very puzzling and challenging non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Loss of motivation and lack of enthusiasm and interest can make a significant impact in the daily lives of those living with PD, as well as their family members and loved ones.
At the other end of the spectrum, impulsivity can also affect those living with PD. Challenges, including having trouble controlling impulses and uncontrolled behavior, are not uncommon.
Dr. Zurowski will be walking us through the non-motor symptoms of Apathy and Impulsivity and sharing his expertise on:
What is this? Why does this happen? What can I do? and What are my treatment options?
Also, in an effort to Raise the Voice of those living with PD, we will be hearing from a member of our Parkinson Community. They will be sharing their personal battle with Apathy and how they are managing it on their own journey of living well with Parkinson’s disease.
