Experts estimate that Lewy body dementia is the third most common type of dementia, after Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Caring for a person living with Lewy body dementia can present unique challenges due to the varied cognitive and physical symptoms that can develop as the disease progresses.

Combining current strategies for managing symptoms and behaviours with personal examples that connect to readers' own experiences, “A Caregiver’s Guide to Lewy Body Dementia” is the ideal book for carers, family members, and friends of individuals seeking to understand the disease and provide support to their loved ones.

You can find this book along with other information and resources related to Lewy body dementia in our Library guide at https://dementia-org.libguides.com/Lewy_Body_Disease
