This UCSF one-pager is titled “A Patient’s Guide to Dementia with Lewy Body Disease (DLB).” UCSF uses the term “dementia with Lewy body disease” rather than “dementia with Lewy bodies,” as others use.

The one-pager describes how therapies and exercise can help:
There are various ways to help a person with DLB. Speech therapy may help improve communication between people with DLB and others. Physical therapy may help strengthen and stretch stiff muscles, and help to prevent falls.
Research has shown that physical exercise helps to enhance brain health and improves mood and general fitness. A balanced diet, enough sleep, and limited alcohol intake are other important ways to promote good brain health. Other illnesses that affect the brain, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, should also be treated if present.
