Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB)

People with Lewy body dementia have a progressive decline in their memory and ability to think; similar to Alzheimer’s disease. However, the cognitive ability or alertness of a person with Lewy body dementia is more likely to fluctuate from one moment to the next, which is not like Alzheimer’s disease. They also often have visual hallucinations (seeing things that aren’t there) and delusions (believing something that is not true). On the surface, people with Lewy body dementia often have problems with movement that resemble Parkinson’s disease. This is because the same structures of the brain are affected in Lewy body dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
