Lewy body dementia, or LBD, is the second most common type of progressive dementia in the world close to Alzheimer's disease dementia. LBD mainly affects older people (over 50 years or more), although younger people may also.
What is Lewy body dementia?
Lewy Body Dementia is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by the deposition of an abnormal protein called alpha-synuclein in the brain. These proteins are known as Lewy bodies and are capable of causing chemical changes in the brain, leading to problems with movement, thinking, behavior and mood.
Caring for someone with Lewy body dementia
In the early stages of LBD, caring for loved ones is easier. However, the symptoms worsen over time and become more difficult to manage. As a result, caregivers begin to experience stress and have difficulty caring for loved ones. Caregivers can even become discouraged as they have to face challenging situations in their personal lives. In these situations, choosing a caregiver for your loved ones is a necessary step to follow.
