LBD Video Series: Fluctuations & Hallucinations

Jun 22, 2021 | Nick Rethemeier | @nrethemeier | Comments (14)

Over the course of several weeks, The Hub will launch a series of videos focused on Lewy Body Dementia (LBD). You will hear from experts at Mayo Clinic as well as collaborating partners presenting on LBD and ways to manage symptoms and improve quality of life for the person with dementia and their caregivers.

This week's video features Tanis Ferman, PhD, a neuropsychologist from Mayo Clinic Jacksonville discussing the background and causes of fluctuations and hallucinations, as well as tips for caregivers to engage with the person experiencing hallucinations constructively and compassionately.

For previous videos on Lewy Body Dementia, visit the LBD Video Library and stay tuned to the Hub for a new video each week.

@seamaiden @ava2brian @jgw02 @carolannp @amesmassage I invite you connect with others living with LBD and caregivers caring for someone with dementia in these groups:

Such a great video. I am passing it on to family who won't accept the diagnosis. I have seen every symptom.

Judith, that's great that this video might help communication with your family and their acceptance of your diagnosis. I'd like to bring @larryh123 into this discussion too.

Judith, it can be really hard for those close to you to acknowledge that change will happen. In what ways do they not accept it? What helps them understand?
