About Lewey Body Dementia
Lewey Body Dementia is a terrible disease that affects middle age to elderly people. As the name suggests, it causes dementia, but it also causes a host of other problems. LBD causes the sufferer to have auditory and visual hallucinations which wreak havoc on their life and the ones who care for them. LBD also causes Parkinson's Disease symptoms which in turn causes the sufferer to be at an increased risk for falling. My mother and I as her caregiver were greatly affected by LBD. Getting a diagnosis and treatment took several years. There was not a lot of resources available at the time. My mother suffered from both auditory and visual hallucinations most all of the time. There was not a medication that helped with these problems. My mother also fell a lot if she tried to walk without any assistance. After suffering with LBD for about 5 years, my mother fell and as a result of the fall had a major stroke. She fought hard to recover for 3 months, but ended up dying because of complications of the stroke. Unless you have been there, you can't begin to imagine how horrible this disease is for not only the person suffering, but the caregiver as well. There needs to be more money available for research and treatment of this disease.
