Does your loved one have Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD), REM Sleep Behavior Disorder and/or experience subtle shifts in personality and/or cognition? In this episode, we discuss some of the subtle and often overlooked physical, behavioral, cognitive and personality changes that may be early indicators of LBD.
Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) is the second most common form of dementia, the least understood and the most difficult to diagnose because it’s episodic in nature. Unlike other forms of dementia where memory loss is gradual, the executive functioning of a person with Lewy Body ebbs and flows. In this episode, we cover the history of LBD and how it was identified, the diagnostic criteria for LBD, how LBD affects cognitive functioning and the importance of taking notes.
