Hi Everyone, I’ve not used this forum before, so hello. I'm impressed with the level of support found on this & other forums, so thanks for being there. I’ve been looking after my mum who has had Lewy Body Dementia for some time now, although we didn’t have a name for the condition until recently. There was a lot of confusion at the outset because other unrelated symptoms came up at the same time as well as things that could have been other diseases, so we went down the wrong tracks. Some advice we got was just plain wrong, in retrospect. Physically, she’s in good shape, but mentally it’s a very changeable picture, with some periods becoming very challenging. If anyone else is in the same position, I’d like to exchange strategies about you cope, particularly with the confusion the person you care for suffers from. The advice I’ve seen for handling situations is often quite generic, so to share ideas about a real situation would be helpful. All the best for now, Tony.
