This blog was started in November 2009 by Gilli whose 80-year-old mother may have Lewy Body Dementia. I believe they live in the UK. The family is dealing with many behavioral issues. The mother is currently in a hospital; I don’t know if this is a skilled nursing facility or a psychiatric ward.
Here’s a brief excerpt:
“It seems that this illness became noticeable in Sept 2008 after going on a cruise… A brief spell in hospital followed a ‘passing out’ not unconscious, aware of what was said around her but not responding to anyone.Various tests followed …perhaps a small stroke or TIA it was thought, perhaps vascular dementia but as time has passed it is thought that it is Lewy Body dementia. ”
