The Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia is the first book ot present a thorough picture of what Lewy Body Dementia really is.

A Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia is written in everyday language and filled with personal examples that connect to the readers' own experiences. It includes quick fact and caregiving tips for easy reference, a comprehensive resource guide, and a glossary of terms and acronyms.

This is the ideal resource for caregivers, family members, and friends of individuals seeking to understand Lewy Body Dementia."

About the Author: "Jim Whitworth's first wife was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. Propelled by the lack of information on the disease that led to his wife's plunging into severe dementia and subsequent demise in 2003, he co-founded the now nationally known Lewy Body Dementia Association (http://lbda.org). ||In 2005, he married Helen Whitworth, a retired nurse with training and writing experience. Together they author The Thistle, the LBDA newsletter. They also teamed up to present classes on LBD to dementia care staff, volunteers, caregivers and the general public Riding the Roller Coaster with Lewy evolved from these classes. ||Lewy Body Dementia is the second leading cause of degenerative dementia in the elderly. If so many people have LBD, then one might think that it would be fairly well known. But it is not. It is only now that LBD has some acceptance as a ""real"" dementia and a stand-alone disease. Six years after founding their organization, the Whitworths still find people confusing LBD with Alzheimer's disease (AD). One of the goals of this book is to shed some light on that confusion.|"
