Description:

The website provides information, resources, and links to local organizations describing surrounding Lewy Body Dementia.

Early and accurate diagnosis of LBD, while not always easy to do, is of critical importance for two reasons.

First, people with LBD may respond more favorably to certain dementia medications than people with Alzheimer’s, allowing for early treatment that may improve or extend the quality of life for both the person with LBD and their caregiver.
Secondly, many people with LBD respond more poorly to certain medications for behavior and movement than people with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, sometimes with dangerous or permanent side effects.
By learning about common forms of dementia, you can help your physician most quickly identify what type of dementia has developed.
