Lewy Body Dementia

Posted by @westie in Brain & Nervous System, Jan 3, 2012

I would be interested in touching base with patients or care givers re Lewy Body Disease. My Dad has been diagnosed with this disease about 1 1/2 years ago. Would be very interested, not only in medical treatments, but also in various therapeutic methods used (including but not only music, massage, play/theatre/acting, cognitive, physical therapies, speech therapy, pets, gardening, et cetera). And any outcomes of any of these methods tried. Also, would be interested in care giving techniques or tips or experiences. Thank you.

Hello -
There is some information about Lew Body Dementia available on mayoclinic.com:
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/lewy-body-dementia/DS00795

It does have some information about treatment options, etc.

If you are interested in bringing your father to see a Mayo Clinic physician, please click on the "request an appointment" link on the upper right hand corner of your screen.
