Memory and Emotional Health in Parkinson’s Disease

Memory and emotional health are key elements to well-being and quality of life. While memory functions and emotional health are independent concepts in our day-to-day experiences, they are strongly related and can have a significant impact on our worldview and our function at home, in the community, and in the workplace.   We had 444 participants in the survey. Approximately 70% of the participants reported having memory difficulties that interfere with day-to-day activities. Depression and anxiety were also prevalent for the participants, and individuals with anxiety and depression reported memory problems in far greater frequency than those individuals who did not experience emotional disturbance.   The relationship between memory, emotional disturbance, and quality of life are discussed, and effective memory strategies and coping behaviors are also outlined in this report.
