Most people are well aware of the motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease. However, non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's may be more unexpected. It may be surprising to learn that 50% of people living with Parkinson's disease will experience hallucinations or delusions over the course of their disease. Danielle Koenig, a nurse practitioner from the Capistrant Parkinson's Center, will share some information about this topic, as well as a new treatment option for people experiencing these symptoms.
