Dementia: Signs, Symptoms & Stories of Lewy Body

Dementia: Signs, Symptoms & Stories of Lewy Body

Dementia can manifest in many ways, but Lewy body dementia (LBD) has some unique characteristics. This episode delves into the signs and symptoms of LBD, empowering you to recognize them and seek early diagnosis.

Unveiling the Fog:

  • Fluctuations in Thinking: Learn how LBD can cause memory and focus to vary significantly throughout the day.
  • Vivid Hallucinations: Explore a hallmark symptom of LBD - seeing things that aren't there.
  • Movement Challenges: Discover how tremors, rigidity, and difficulty with walking might be linked to LBD.

More Than Just a Diagnosis:

  • The Power of Stories: We'll hear firsthand accounts from those living with LBD and their caregivers, highlighting the emotional and practical challenges they face.
  • Building a Support Network: Learn about resources and strategies to create a compassionate and informed environment for those affected by LBD.
  • Fueling Research and Advocacy: Discover how sharing stories can raise awareness and contribute to a better understanding of this complex form of dementia.

Join us as we navigate the complexities of Lewy body dementia. By recognizing the signs, finding support, and advocating for research, we can create a brighter future for those living with LBD.

Our guest is Mary Lou Falcone an internationally known classical music publicist/strategist. Combining communication skills with her background as a performer and educator Mary Lou adds another layer: advocate for LBD awareness. Her late husband, the illustrator Nicky Zann, died from LBD in 2020 and was the catalyst for her first book, I Didn't See It Coming.
