What are differences?

Unlike with Alzheimer's patients and other dementias, patients with parkinson's don't lose their memory.

Unlike with stroke patients with parkinson's don't lose their physcial strength but lose body flexibility and coordination.

Unlike with stroke patients with parkinson's develop trouble with planning, making decisions and controlling their emotions, and often exhibit changes in personality.

They are members of motors and non motors symptoms.

Why they are differences?

Kindly elaborate



to help the PD patients aware the diseases and encourage to set up support groups to educate the patients and their immediate families

Dear Mr. Teo,
Although Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and Parkinson's disease are all neurological disorders, they are all quite different diseases. Because they have different causes, they thus have differing effects.

Best regards,
