Parkinsonism is Disorder of motor activity characterised by slowness of movement and stiffness. Memory loss is a consequence of dementia. Both can occur together. Dementia involves damage of nerve cells in the brain, which can occur in several areas of the brain. Dementia affects people differently, depending on the area of the brain affected. Most types of dementia can't be cured, but there are ways to manage the behavioural symptoms. A neurological and psychiatric evaluation is required to make a rehabilitation plan for such patients.
