In brief: Yes
Unfortunately, people with parkinson's often go from ambulatory and verile to bed-bound and senile in the end stages.
Many medications can delay this progression, but once it gets to that point, hospice is a great option for care.

In brief: Yes
Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder. Patients become less responsive over time with rigidity, slowness of movement and dementia, among other symptoms.
