Sample text

And sometimes the words that come out of his mouth aren’t the ones he means and I have to interpret. Like yesterday, he asked me for a turnip, but he was holding out his glass, so I knew he really wanted a drink. He knows it’s the wrong word, but if we just laugh it off, he can accept it as part of his disease and move on. —Kyla, Ed’s daughter Ed takes a long time to answer because Lewy body dementia has slowed down his thinking processes. He must slowly process what Kyla says and what he wants to say in return, and even then he may still pull out the wrong word from his LBD-riddled memory.

Clara has the kind of LBD that starts with motor dysfunctions, and her facial muscles are weak—a Parkinson’s symptom— making it hard for her to say those words she can recall. Thus, her answers are long in coming and short in content. Memory losses usually accompany other losses, such as a decrease in thinking and communication skills and a general slowness of thought. Thinking We use thinking skills for planning, learning, reasoning, and doing sequential tasks. Sometimes these skills are called executive abilities.

Along with your loved one’s symptoms, these tests give a good specialist the information he needs to make an informed diagnosis. Choosing Your Specialist In a best-case scenario, your family doctor has some knowledge of LBD, will want to refer you, and will know someone good to refer you to. Even if you are not so fortunate, your doctor will likely be willing to make a referral if you request it, and you may be able to request a certain specialist if you know of one. However, finding one can be the challenge.
