Understanding Lewy Body Dementia

Lewy body dementia is the second most common type of dementia and is characterized by a spectrum of symptoms that sometimes are misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.

Lewy body dementia is associated with abnormal protein deposits in the brain that affect thinking, movement, behavior, and mood.

This program discusses the most common symptoms, what a proper diagnosis includes, and treatment options for both the individual and the caregiver.
