Dementia With Lewy Bodies (cont.)
Dementia With Lewy Bodies Treatment
There is no cure nor treatment that stops or slows DLB. Treatment is aimed at relieving symptoms and delaying loss of mental abilities for as long as possible.
An individual with DLB should always be under medical care. Much of the day-to-day care, however, is handled by family caregivers. Medical care should focus on optimizing the individual’s health, safety, and quality of life while helping family members cope with the many challenges of caring for a loved one with DLB.
