Category: Parkinson's Disease: Non-Motor Symptoms
Objective: Objective: To study the influence of depression on ADLs in patients with PD in stages I and II of Hoenh and Yahr.
Background: Background: Depression is a common neuropsychiatric pathology in Parkinson’s disease (PD), with important repercussions on neurocognitive functioning, quality of life and activities of daily living (ADLs).
Method: Method: 50 subjects diagnosed with PD, in Hoenh and Yahr stages I and II, with a mean age of 64.85 years (SD= 6.532) and 50 healthy subjects without cognitive impairment, with similar sociodemographic characteristics. Material: Barthel Index (basic ADLs), Lawton and Brody Scale (instrumental ADLs). Yesavage Geriatric Depression Scale (EDY).
Results: Results: Statistically significant differences were found in the scores obtained in the Barthel index (basic ADLs) and the Lawton and Brody scale (instrumental ADLs) between patients with PD and the control group (p<0.001). Significant differences were also found between both groups in the score obtained in the EDY (p<0.001). A statistically significant negative correlation was found between the score obtained in the EDY and the total score obtained in the Barthel index (Rho= -0.431; p= 0.002) and in the Lawton and Brody scale (Rho= -0.301; p= 0.035).
Conclusion: Conclusions: Depression correlates negatively with PD patients’ functionality/independence to perform basic and instrumental ADLs.
