Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia

Approximately 20% of people with Parkinson’s disease will develop dementia. There is usually a 10 to 15 year time span between a Parkinson’s diagnosis and the onset of dementia, which typically occurs years after the motor skills begin to be affected. Parkinson’s patients who experience hallucinations and more severe motor control problems seem to be at a greater risk for dementia.
