Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to evaluate the effect of a home-based self-management intervention in community-dwelling patients with early Parkinson’s diseases (PD). Design: A randomized-controlled design. Methods: Thirty-two patients participated (15=intervention, 17=control), and the intervention group received 16 weeks of the intervention. Findings: Physical activity and non-motor symptoms improved more in the intervention group than in the control group. Conclusion: Home-based self-management intervention was effective in improving physical activity and non-motor symptoms for them. Clinical evidence: Home-based intervention–comprising education, telephone counseling, smartphone-based message and information, and smart wearable devices–was feasible for patients with early PD.
