Parkinson's disease affects around 1 million people in the United States, and the neurological disorder can significantly disrupt a person's everyday life. Although home care providers and can assist with activities of daily living, it's up to family members to also recognize how to manage some of the most common symptoms.
Difficulty walking is one of the hallmark signs of Parkinson's, and it often affects those impacted by the disease when they're approaching an object such as a doorway or furniture. There are a few methods to overcome such symptoms, but experts suggest caregivers can help their loved ones by counting steps with them or encouraging them to focus on an imaginary object in front of them.
