What to Know About COVID-19: Trusted Senior Resources

Researching where to turn for the current, most dependable info on COVID-19, specifically as it relates to seniors and those who provide caregiving assistance for them, is very important – and can be difficult.

What Is Dementia with Lewy Bodies and How Is It Different from Parkinson’s Disease?

Each and every year, thousands of American seniors are told they have Parkinson’s disease, but they do not. For many of these patients, the correct diagnosis is a very similar but not as well-known disease: dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Dementia with Lewy bodies affects around 1.3 million Americans, according to the Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA). That estimate could possibly be too low since some individuals who’ve been inaccurately diagnosed with Parkinson’s still have not been given an accurate diagnosis. So, what is dementia with Lewy bodies and how is it different from Parkinson’s? It can be difficult to differentiate, because the signs and symptoms for the two diagnoses can be very similar, particularly as they progress, as they reflect similar underlying modifications in the brain. Here are the symptoms you should know about, according to the LBDA: Intensifying dementia – Increasing confusion and reduced attention and executive function are common. Memory impairment may not be obvious in the early stages. Frequent visual hallucinations – These are commonly intricate and elaborate. Hallucinations of other senses – Touch or hearing are probably the most frequent. REM sleep behavior disorder – This might appear decades ahead of the onset of dementia
