Injuries are common among people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), occurring most often in bedrooms (30%), living areas (19%), and kitchens (15%). People with Parkinson’s disease often fall when they lose their balance either due to muscle weakness, vision impairment, or home hazards, which cause them to trip or stumble.
