Abstract: Introduction. The quality of life in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) is related to the disease level, which also indicates the caregiver's quality of life. Methods. This study comprised 43 patients with PD (31 male) and their respective caregivers (35 female) in order to evaluate if these disease symptoms may change their quality of life. Results. There was a statistically significant correlation between quality of life and the disease level and caregiver stress. The higher the score of disease level, the worse the patients and caregivers' quality of life. Conclusion. The disease control improves the patients' quality of life and, consequently, the caregivers' quality of life.
