Description - A Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia by Helen Buell Whitworth

Although Lewy Body Dementia is the second leading cause of degenerative Dementia in the elderly, it is not well known or understood and is often confused with Alzheimer's Disease or Parkinson's. The Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia is the first book to present a thorough picture of what Lewy Body Dementia really is. It also received a 2012 Caregive Friendly Award from Today's Caregiver magazine.

A Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia is written in everyday language and is 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.
