RE: My mother has been recently diagnosed with Lewy body disease
Lewy body dementia is a disorder characterized by cognitive impairment and memory problems that results in a decline of ones ability to function. Behavioral aspects such as depression, anxiety, agitation and confusion may be improved with medication and behavior modification. It is always important to look for an underlying cause that is treatable and may somtimes reverse or stabilize the dementia. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimers disease which is always progressive.
